Happy Birthday dad!!!!!! You always loved your birthday because Sherri, Diane. Sue and I fussed over you. You had a sweet spot for cherry pie , popsicles and cake. You were always talking about the Pittsburg Steelers. I miss you dad, but I know you are celebrating your birthday with mom and Jesus this year. I will honor you by being the best daughter and never forgetting what you taught me. I love you dad !!! Your loving daughter, Helen Mae

I remember as a little girl going to Aunt Mary and Uncle Sonny's house in Blairsville. It was in the country and I loved to go there. There was a big rope which we could grab and swing way out over a hill. And always the horses. Aunt Mary made the best fried rice ever! Uncle Sonny let me as a child to be free. Even made bridles from the ropes from the hay, and rode with no saddle. I always begged my Nanny to let me go to Uncle Sonny's when he came to her house. He was not as strict as my parents (who worried too much) and I had so much fun when I went there. I never remember getting a spanking either :) In Florida we shared a pasture for our horses. We used to ride to the house and give them a bath. And Aunt Mary always had food on hand , especially the wonderful rice. We also went to church together here in Florida when he first moved down here. I know my Uncle Sonny and me felt the same way about God and I believe he finally got to meet Him in heaven, with Aunt Mary waiting for Uncle Sonny. I didn't see him much in later years, but memories and love never changes. It is saved inside the heart.
