Personal Notes:
Family Memories from Bettye: My memories go back so far. . . I remember Grandpa driving up in the milk truck and coming up the steps to the house with a great big smile-his blue eyes twinkling and his red hair ablaze. While we lived down by the Locust Grove, a snake got into the screened-in porch and the neighbor boys came and killed it with a hoe. We had the washing machine out on the back porch. I got my arm caught in the wringer trying to help! I used to visit all the aunts and uncles in the summer. Two weeks at each one. I have great memories of those days.
Grandma didn’t go to church much when I was growing up. She’d have Sunday dinner for everyone. I remember how we’d all sing as we did dishes. I have her Bible Reading book . . .
