I met the Gravely's when I was around 4 years old. They lived next door to my Granny on Brake Drive and I lived about 6 houses down. I thought it was so cool to be around their house. There were always a bunch of older kids around. Nelda and mom switched taking Mary and I to the morning kindergarten class at the First Baptist Church. I always wanted Nelda to drive because they had a Volkswagen Bus. It was the coolest vehicle I had ever seen. I was so disappointed when Nelda got her new Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Some weekends they would take me with the to Gunter for the weekends. Wish I could go back to being a kid. Things were so simple. Nelda worked at Central Elementary while we were going there. I remember getting in trouble in Ms. Bass' class (she was a mean teacher) and running to the cafeteria to find Nelda for protection. Looking back, I'm sure she didn't always want the little Sewell girl around, she had 5 kids of her own. All I know, is growing up on Brake Drive with the Gravley's are my favorite childhood memories. Nelda made a difference in my life, I just wish I had told her. Rest in Peace Nelda.
