~Adelaide Gehl Peterson~
My Grandmother, Adelaide,
died when my mother was very young.
So we never knew her.
It’s a vague and secretive part of the family history.
Only fragments survive.
Bits of the German heritage
and a few photos link us to her.
The memento is a frozen Charlotte doll fragment,
representing this family history.
Broken, fragmented, pieces missing,
the doll represents my Grandmother’s short life.
