being thankful...

I worked in the morning, Kevin watched football all day and made our Thanksgiving supper. had 2 calls on people wanting to adopt puppies. Katie put up the tree and got us all dressed & ready. my mom, dad, brother, husband, and 2 youngest children were here for Thanksgiving. we got to see our oldest daughter and son in law last weekend. and for that, I am thankful.

Grandpa Vermal's Prayer

Amen. Brother Ben. Shot a rooster and killed a hen.

I sure miss my grandpa!

I cried when you passed away...

I cried when you passed away. I still cry today. Although I loved you dearly, I couldn't make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke my heart to prove to me he only takes the best.
Keep this rose going for anyone in heaven that you've loved and lost - but never forgot

Grandma Grace, Grandpa Vermal, Aunt Kay...

they're droppin' like flies...

deleted another facebook relative...
no reason to go into details...but I have a feeling this is how those big blank holes appear in genealogies...when the self-proclaimed genealogist of the family gets pissy & quits making notations on different branches...ignoring, oh say, births... am thinking I should just keep track of my own immediate family & the hell with the rest of them. don't want to intrude on anyone's privacy. although my theory is if you post it ain't really private. but whatever.
