Late Grandma Mary Duggar Holds Little Joseph in a Tribute Throwback Photo
Joseph and Kendra Duggar have shared numerous photos with fans on social media to pay tribute to late Grandma Mary Duggar.
Joseph and Kendra Duggar took to Instagram on June 13 to share a total of four photos. Each of them includes Mary, but the most heartwarming is the very first, which is an old picture of the late former estate agent.
In the photo, Mary, dressed just like the oldies in a black suit and with her face sporting a bit of makeup, is holding a tiny Joseph in her arms. With Mary’s elegant ensemble, it looks like the pair are at a special occasion and a rare moment can be savored as the stunning matriarch looked lovingly at little Joseph.
The other images look like they were taken much more recently and on different special occasions too. In the second picture, Mary is seated at a round table and with many others at what looks like a birthday bash.
The third is from a Christmas get together, and the last is of Kendra, Joseph's wife of two years, holding their first child and seated side by side with Mary.
