Maurice, Marion and Elsie Rackliff with pet pig in So. Thomaston, Me.

I mentioned on Facebook the other day that I had come across some photos of family members I had never seen before on my cousin Audrey’s FB page. I’m thankful that she had taken the time to scan these and post them. My Grandpa, Maurice “Rack” Rackliff, was the man who has had the greatest impact on my life. That’s saying a lot, given the many strong male role models in my family — my dad, my Uncle Jack, my Uncle Jonny, my father-in-law. I got quite a lump in my throat as I looked at these photos and the others that Audrey had posted. I’m reposting them here for my brother and sister to see and for the rest of our family members who haven’t yet had a chance to see them.
