At his funeral , Rev. Randall Dye officiated and good gosh, poor Randall, he was grieving also but every word he spoke of my grandfather was true. We couldnt of asked for a better friend of the family to do papas service. randall done great. I will always remember my Papa as living each day to help
papa passed the day before my mothers birthday and was buried on mawsie and papa's anniversary. The good thing is now there anniversary has another good thing about it. My daughter Katie was born on jan 22., on their anniversary. they would of been married 55 years on the day she was born. also another side note, if you know me or the family you know my grandfather commited suicide due to his illness, the Parkinson's had took over and he had dementia and was causing all kinds of side effects. The only reason I told this is because during this time, the family had too many friends to list to come forward and basically help do anything. My best friend Angel, came as soon as she heard, and stayed with me for a week. Almost got fired for being with me and she didn't care this is how much she cared about me and my family. We call her the adopted daughter just like her family thinks of me. This is how loved my grandfather was.
I could write pages and pages on the stuff that he has done. One other thing sticks out.I was a dispatcher for 12 years and one of the police officers that had been around a long time, told me that papa was his guardian angel that he went with him to calls here on the mountain, that if dispatch couldn't get him on the radio that he knew papa would be there in a min to check on him... Now I am grateful because he is my guardian angel.

I want to know if anyone else gets sidetracked by the ancestry.com member trees? I have gotten sidetracked so many, many times. I take really good notes and record the sources of where i got info from when i find something that i knows belongs in the tree. But, here lately, i have been adding people off of these member trees and its screwing me all up.. All i can say is thank goodness for my notes or I would have to start all over again. I have to remember to take these trees as just a sampling of what might be right but not to take it as gospel for being right.

Managed to get on the internet and enter some sweeps (sorry addicted to entering sweeps just like genealogy). Now I have finally made my way to Ancestry.com. Yesterday, I posted surnames on facebook and got alot of feedback. A cousin and I discussed possible relation to Robert E. Lee. This fascinates me. I have always loved reading and watching everything I could on the Civil War. I love the whole time period. We are going to see what we can find to see if this relationship might be right or not. I am hoping that we will be able to find documentation to prove it.
