I was playing with friends outside. I got so cold that my
feet & hands were frost bitten. I started crying because
they hurt so much. Some men carried me in the store,
took off my boots and stockings, and rubbed my hands
and feet with snow. I guess I thawed out because I still
have my feet and hands. So lucky!
I visited them [Ruth & Dick] several times
and that’s where I met Jimmie.
He started coming over to see me
and soon we got married.
I remember when Kerry was 3 yrs old, he
would hide in the bushes … and shoot
customers with his water pistol as they went
in and out of the store…
This is why parents get gray!
Kerry and Ronnie
We bought our first house on 249 Lena Dr...
That’s when I got pregnant and had
Ronnie… Kerry was 14 yrs older than Ronnie.
Ronnie - 1966
Jimmie & I always wanted to be sure Ronnie
kept up his good grades… If you make all A’s
we will give you $5.00… He collected $10.00
without us realizing what he had done.
Our business card
Jimmie & I both ran the poultry house
but we were financed by a Poultry
company from South Carolina. Their
name was Holly Farms

Jr, Jeri, Kerry and Me
Dick retired and Jr. took over the Agency. It’s a good
thing Jr. has such a sweet & lovely wife [Jeri] who
helps him in the Agency. I really appreciate Jr. He is
the best employer I ever had and also my nephew.
Cynthia and Me - September 1973
Later Dick also had a very beautiful daughter
[Cynthia] and a very, very cute daughter [Diana]
When she was born, Jimmie & Dick had gone
fishing... Jimmie held up one of the fishes and said
“Look, this fish is as long as your baby [Diana]!”
He [Ronnie] attended the school of pharmacy
and there he met a very sweet and lovely girl
[Nancy] and eventually got married.
