|Mom and Dad|
We lost Dad when he was only 50 years old. Then lost mom in 1991. We still miss them, but, know that we can see them again someday. For that; we are thankful.
So many memories cross my mind when I look at this picture. Dad's sense of humor, and how easy going he was, mom's spunk, the games she taught us, like Club Fist, I Got Some Bread and Cheese, and others, the Haint stories she told us, and what a good cook she was.
The Christmas Season is near again, and I am reminded of the simple Christmas's long ago. When I was around five, I can remember getting a rubber doll for Christmas, a rubber doll with molded hair, no clothes, no wrapping paper, it was in a clear plastic sack. My little sister got one, too. We were so tickled when we awoke and found them on our pillows. We got little, but, it mean't a lot. The best gift I could think of today, would be to know that I would see my whole family again in Heaven someday.
