Letters

Larry Lourcey

Hi and welcome to my blog!I do my best
to keep things updated and give you a look at things happening behind the scenes here at Lourcey Photography. Although I've been a professional photographer for over 20 years, I'm also semi-famous for my pizza and bread making. So follow along and enjoy the adventure. And don't be afraid to leave a comment and say hello!

Susan's item is a stack of letters from her grandmother.

Here is her story:

What I would save are letters from my grandma that we started writing to each other when the Covid shutdown began. She was extremely social and it killed me thinking that she wasn’t able to leave her assisted living room anymore to go eat, play bridge, swim, and everything else she normally did with all her friends there.

Every day I sent a letter with questions about her life (because she lived an incredible one) and the girls would draw a picture or make some kind of artwork and we’d mail it to her so she’d have something to look forward to and also something to do while she was stuck in her room. Eventually we were able to smuggle an iPhone to her and teach her to FaceTime which allowed her to video chat with not just us, but her entire family across the country. But these letters detailing her childhood that I’d never known before will always be a reminder of her that I will keep and treasure.
