Debbie... Thank you for sharing your childhood home and family with me. Your Mom served my (@ 16yrs old) first bowl of grits, while your Dad teased me about being a grits 'late bloomer'. What a blessing to look back at the memories associated with your parents. Do you remember this? My sons call me a dork, a dweeb, and weird when I tell the story of going to your house to watch Elvis Aloha Hawaii in 1973. I think I was at your house because of a new tv in the den. Ha! I do sound like a dork when I think about it. Your Dad teased me during the entire show. He kept reminding me that Elvis was the same age as my parents. Good, fun memories! Thank you! May our Creator Father cover you with the Hope of Heaven, His Peace that Comforts, and the Blessings of a Godly Dad. Love you!
