My mother-in-law, Sandi, grew up in South Minneapolis. Sadly, she passed away in 2007 before our first child was born. Searching through boxes of pictures, we found a picture of Sandi as a young child standing in front of her childhood home.
We drive past the house at least once a year and think of her. My husband wanted a picture of our daughters in front of the home for a long time now, but we were nervous. The house is not in the family anymore and we have no idea who lives there. Yesterday we gathered our courage and descended upon the house.
We rang the doorbell and had a good story prepared, but no one was home. We felt we needed to accomplish our mission, so we snapped quick pictures and took off.
Look at the side by side.
It was really important to my husband. I’m so glad we trespassed. We now have new memories of a very sweet lady. Rest peacefully Sandra Arlene. We love and miss you.
