Like your Honey do list!! Been thinking of you and your family and glad your all well. Been following the news on Georgia. Hoping the virus has hit it's peak. Also, glad your home enjoying the family. I was going through old books today, found an old leather bible. It was a Christmas gift to your grandparents in their first year of marriage from your Aunt Juanita and Uncle Clyde. Your Grandfather recorded all your birthdays. I didn't realize our birthdays are s few days apart. And our siblings birthdays are a couple days apart. Different years of course! I want to make sure this bible makes it's way to you. I was chatting with my Uncle Danny's ex wife, we were remembering your Grandfather's quick wit, he was known for spewing one liners that had everyone laughing. His eyes were a o dark blue they almost looked black.His eyes were very reflective of his thoughts and personality. He could smile with his eyes. We used to laugh to the point of tears, which would sometimes irritate your Uncle Clyde. He'd say something and all it did was to make us laugh harder. His sense of humor is something we truly miss. Carol had asked me if I had his BBQ sauce recipe. He loved pork ribs, and he'd go to this one place and buy their sauce by the gallon. One summer he decided we were going to make our own sauce. My job was recording what he put into it. Just remember being in the kitchen for the longest time! Going to look for that recipe. He was a lot like you in the fact he never went into debt, as always saved and paid cash for his new cars. He liked Pontiac Bonneville's. He once bought a white one, it was hit twice in the first month, he said it was jinxed, he got rid of it as soon as he got it out of the body shop!

Please be careful. This whole virus issue seems surreal. My neighbor and I felt something was going to happen, we both were stocking up. We were thinking more of some country taking out the electric grids not a Pandemic!
Love your cuz,
Rachel

Hey Cuz,

Good to hear from you and I'm glad you are healthy and well....

I would love to hear more about my grandfather, as well as see the Bible. Let's plan on connecting as soon as this is over.
