~My Grandfather

Shared monument with Louise.

In 1912 came to America, Volga Germans From Russia.
As many came as possible. They only had the clothes in their suitcases and a dream for a better life. They settled in Fresno, Ca. Thank you my grandparents for the courage to come to a country, they didn't know the language. didn't have a job, just a dream....I offen wonder what a life it would of been for them in Russia..
My grandparents, I thank you...
