As a young child growing up I could not pronounce Weeden. Because of that I was allowed to call her Snookie.My memories of her are that she was always kind and caring. Always a great homemaker and mother. Good cook too! I still remember her Christmas baking. Um Um good!Growing up in the early fifties she was who I wanted to be.As an adult she was always very gracious to me,always concerned about me.Always wanted to make sure I was ok. Even though she preferred to be called Weeden,she still let me call her Snookie.Thank you Weeden for always showing me unconditional love and acceptance! Love your cousin Ellen

As a small child,I always called her Snookie. I could not pronounce Weeden.I remember how gracious she was.Always a great homemaker and mother. Good cook too! Made the best Christmas goodies. When I became an adult,I aspired to be like her. She was what I wanted to be! The last few years,I remember her love and concern for me! She was always asking about me. Always wanting to know how I was doing.Even though she preferred to be called Weeden,she would still let me call her Snookie.She left me with wonderful memories.Thank you Snookie,for always making me feel loved and accepted.

Recently I talked with Weeden and we went back in time about Washington and the "good old days" our families shared together. I remembered this poem today by Sandra Evans given to me, years ago, and would like to share:
THERE IS A LITTLE TOWN ON THE PAMLICO
There's a little town on the Pamlico, that's wrapped around my heart.
There's a little town called Washington where rainbow seem to start.
Where eagles soar, away up high.
Tall steeples light up, the evening sky
Sailboats chase the breezes, moss shades lazy creeks.
Great herons stand like statues, and day dreams last for weeks.
Where the sunset glows and daylight fades, the river calls to me.
And moonlit path shows the way back home, that's where I want to be.
Miss you already-sweet dreams-Cousin Bobby

I am lucky to have had Aunt Weeden in my life. Thru her I learned much including the true meaning of southern hospitality, charm and grace. Her wit and humor made any gathering enjoyable and memorable.
And it seems there was always pie ....

I have many happy memories of visiting my cousins in Little Washington. Weedon was always a great source of family history and had a wonderful sense of humor.
