My Namesake

My father named me after his mom, Myrtle Brown. I’ve never known my aana Myrtle because she passed away before I was born. My dad and his siblings share stories here and there, and these pictures make me proud to carry her name.

dad says she was a quiet stay at home mom, and after my taata Stubby lost his eyesight she kept busy taking care of him.
