Five Generations of Women in Alpena Pass Down Traditions

Alpena, Mich.- It’s something most families don’t get a chance to experience, five generations sharing laughter, stories, and traditions.

“I’m just thankful that I’m a great grandmother, and a great, great, grandmother, and that I got to live this long,” Great, Great, Grandmother, Elaine Hatch said.

Passing down words of wisdom, one piece of advice remains the same. “Just love your babies. Just look at it as a blessing,” Great Grandmother, Connie McElhanon said.

Baby Brooklyn is too young to brag about her birthday, but her arrival was extra special. “She was born on my youngest daughter’s birthday,” Grandmother, Stephanie O’Neal revealed.

Having her own daughter was truly a test; but when it comes to being a young mother, and adding more additions to the family, Allesse O’Neal said she wouldn’t trade her journey for anything.

“Life is unexpected. Things happen that you don’t plan for, just take it as a blessing,” the new mother suggested.
