More About Maro

A friend of the family, Bonnie Patmon O'Neil, found some old pictures among her mother's photographs, and I was delighted to see two beautiful pictures of my mother, Mary Elizabeth Satterfield Ramey. My daddy called her Maro.

I think this picture is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen in my life! I've never seen this photo before, and I'm totally amazed by this lovely person.

My daddy said he married her because she was the prettiest little thing he'd ever seen. Looking at this picture, I can believe that was true. What she said was that she knew he liked her because when she walked by his house, he threw rocks at her!



A long time ago, I had a copy of this picture with the hat. But it has been lost for many years, and I was so delighted that Bonnie brought us this replacement.

sweet baby picture.

If you will paint a portrait from that first photo, I will purchase it from you. Please.
