Memories Timeline


  1. I'm with you.There's no need to fear for I'm your God.I'll give you strength. I'll help you.I'll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.- Isaiah 41:10From our family to yours!

  2. School was out and I knew that Aunt Ruby would come for me to spend part of the summer at her house.She always made my stay fun.One thing that stands out in my mind is when she had fixed Uncle Sidney's lunch for him to go to work one morning. She took mayo and put on two slices of bread and put cardboard in the middle. She laughed the whole time doing it . She made life fun and She could find humor in just about everything. The sound of her laughter echos in my mind when I think of her.She has touched many lives and made many memories along the way and it is these memories that will keep her alive in each one of us.
