I was talking to my cousin Janel recently and related a story about the close relationship Chancey and I had. If I thought about calling him within minutes he would call me. Before I even picked up the phone I knew it was him. (No caller ID at that time) same went for him, if he thought about calling me within minutes his phone would ring and he knew it was me. Again before even picking up the phone. Just a fond memory of my brother.
And to think how mean to me he was when we were little. I would follow him and his best friend Bill Willamson everywhere they went. Of course neither of them liked little sister following them. I'm sure going to miss our long phone conversations. He was my go to when I had problems or was upset about something.
After John passed Chancey came and stayed at my house the whole summer. 3 months. That helped me so very much emotionally but he also kept me busy. We worked well together and my yard sure showed the work we put into it.

I remember my Uncle Arnold for being such a kind gentle man. He was a Marine and a survivor of WW II, yet he was always very humble. I enjoyed talking to him on the phone often, and he always had a joke to tell me. I pray he rests in peace in the arms of God. My prayers are with his daughters and grandchildren.

Someone posted on Facebook about Thibs pecan house in Longville a few minutes ago. I posted back about when I would go to Lake Charles if they were open I'd stop and get fudge from there always bought enough to share with Dad on my way back home.
It reminded me of a time when Mom was in the hospital I told Dad on the phone that I would stop and get her a hamburger and bring her a piece of the Orange cake I had just made. He told me I had to bring him a piece too. So I stopped at his house on the way. He was outside on the driveway walking his little dog. I am getting out of the car and he says wheres my cake. I hadn't even gotten out of the car yet much less said hello. If I ever wonder where I got my sweet tooth remind me its genetic. Him and Mom both loved sweets. Sitting here right now I have a box of Chocolate covered cherries sitting on my end table.

Uncle Arnold, you will be missed. Mom had such great memories of you and often told stories of your youth. Mom (Bessie Fussell) took care of you. Roy, Lloyd, Nina, and Mable Grace when your Mom died. You went to work at an early age selling newspapers to help with the family expenses. Loved telling the story of your time in New Zealand, and of you war time heroics. Love you and will miss you. Your niece, Sandra Fussell Fulkerson.
