My dad would have been 76 today!
My mom and dad's senior portraits.
My dad's mom, Granny Ella, my mom and dad, me and my 3 siblings, my children, and my oldest sister's 4 children went to the same school. Go Bulldogs!
My granddaddy was a barber for many years and this photo is of my dad shaving granddaddy with a straight razor! Uncle Flavel is there for moral support. :)
My dad when he was between 1 and 2 years old and his older sister, Aunt Zula Mae, with granddaddy and grandma.
My dad drove a semi for a living with a company out of Muscle Shoals, AL., Chem Haulers Trucking Company. He loved his job but hated being away from his family for extended periods of time. He saw all 48 contingent states before he was killed in his truck on February 19, 1970. I had just previously turned 9 years old.
My dad was well loved by many friends. I think I get my personality from him because I make friends easily. The number of flowers at his graveside spoke of the number of friends that he had made through his life. My grandmother made 2 quilts from the ribbons that adorned the flowers and she gave those to me and my older sister. This is my quilt, which I treasure!

By the way... He actually chose a different number in the beginning. and guess what... YEP... You were a No-Reply blogger so your winnings had to go to someone else!
