Names Have Been Changed To Protect The Innocent

Who are these people? Do you recognize them. They seem familiar to me but I am not sure who they are. The beautiful woman: content, happy, smiling? The little boy: no cares, no worries, protected, smiling? The little girl: daddy's girl, happy, confident, smiling? The good looking man: sure, successful, realized, smiling?

Adeline or should we  call her wife, mom. Michael or should we call him son, brother. Libbe or should we call her daughter, sister. Louis or should we call him husband, father. And eventually shall we call them grand parent, great grandparent, wife, grand parent, partner, uncle, great uncle.

Did they have any idea of who they would be for the next sixty or so years? What joys? What sorrows? A final breath. A tear at their passing and then with tears dried, their final breaths? 

I seem to know these people but maybe in a dream or in a good fiction recently read. And who took the picture?
