Photo Flashback! Remember

9/11 is a time to Remember those who died in the attacks on the World Trade Centers.

Here at Growing Up Disney I'd like to take this time to remember two special people who died too early.  I remember Granny and Granddaddy.  Amy's grandparents and my in-laws.  They were fun to be around.  These photos are from November 1997 when Amy was in the College Program at Walt Disney World.  Granny loved the parks and enjoyed getting on the first bus that came by to go visit the hotels.  Granddaddy loved not having to drive once he got to WDW.  On one trip, after visiting the Wilderness Lodge, instead of going back home they booked at the Wilderness Lodge just to stay a few more days.

Granny left us in 1999 and Granddaddy in 2004.  I still miss them.

Who are you remembering today?
