My grandson

September 8, 2016 by Teresa Uzzell Lowry (Register to contact)

It's hard to believe I have a grandson who is old enough to be a senior in high school! Anthony is 18 and graduating this year. Doesn't seem that long since we were the senior class and ruling the halls of OHS. And my granddaughter, Alyssa is in the 7th grade. How fast they grow up and the cycle goes on. Dad is now 83 and Mom 82 will soon be great, great grandparents on my brother's side in February. Maybe I can one day say the same on my side of the family tree and I will be a great grandma.
