(Editor’s note: Does anybody know the name of the boy who took Grandma to prom? Something’s telling me it was Harry Cohen, the seventh person in the fourth row in that class photo with the caps and gowns. Other class-photo names that sound familiar are — in addition to Willie B. Garris, center, front row! — Mildred Cutrell and Audrey Smith, the first two in the second row; Libby Drawdy, the second person in the third row; Annie Ruth Cone, the last person in the fourth row; and Stephen Skardon, the seventh person in the sixth row. Wasn’t it Stephen Skardon who was desperately in love with her?)

  1. Wasn’t B beautiful in her fancy prom dress… this was taken on the steps of the front porch to Grandma Garris’s house, where Momma was born… Those steps really take me back to little girl memories.

  2. Yes, she looked great! Those steps led to the front hall. Down that hall to the back door led to the walkway to the old kitchen and the fig tree that grew by the back door. Isn’t Uncle Keel and Aunt Martha’s house in the background?

  3. Your guess is probably better than mine as to who took her to the high school prom. I don’t remember her ever talking about it to me.
