First I have to explain that I love antiques and old family heirlooms. Our family doesn't have many, and I'm OK with that. Before my family moved from Logan, Utah to Houston, Texas a little over 19 years ago, my Grandma Stay gave me two things that I treasure.
1. This mirror, which hangs above our piano:
I'm told belonged to my Great Grandma Gunn
2. This simple cardboard box:
Although it doesn't look like anything special, I love this box. It is full of papers that belonged to my Grandma and Grandpa Stay and gives me a unique peak into their life. Inside the box are things like:
Old insurance policies
My Great-grandfather Stay's business card
A letter of reference written for my Grandpa Stay
