Family Resemblance

My mother is going through all the Trejo family photos, scanning them and preserving them. She called me to tell me she was sending me an email, so I opened my email and these are the pics that I saw staring back at me.
Relatives and others that knew Grandma Opal when she was younger than 90 have always told me that I resembled her. I have another cousin that I though looked more like her than I do, so I never gave it much thought, or really cared very much.
Well, Grandma Brimhall turned 90 this year and I am glad to know what I will look like when/if I live to be such a grand age! I think she is/was absolutely beautiful and I am glad that I look like her. Of course I think she is beautiful. I would be silly to say that I looked like her then say she was ugly, right?
As for the date for these pics, I may be off, so I apologize if my math is cooky. The two bottom photos were taken in 1933, which would make Grandma Opal 13 years old. She looks older there, so forgive me if my dates are off.
Kind of cool to see yourself in your relatives. Talk about the spirit of Elijah...and genetics!

WOW, I had to do a double take to make sure it wasn't you. Love the family genes!

I think the first one looks exactly like you and the last one is so Amy! Lots of pretty girls in your family.

That is amazing. She really is beautiful, which means obviously you are too. Could you send me that email?
