From the Publisher
Her Great Grandmother lived to be over ninety years old, but never left the small city where she raised her family in Northern North Carolina.
Her Grandmother moved to Western West Virginia in the roaring 20’s and settled down in a small town near the Kentucky border, at the point where the Big Sandy River flows into the Great Ohio River. The author was later born in the same area and remains there to this day.
The author has been afforded the opportunity of raising three wonderful children, who all have left the area, other than one son, who remains.
The two female children have provided her with three marvelous grandchildren, and one great-granddaughter. The author’s eldest granddaughter and great granddaughter has returned and established their abode in the same geographical area.
The author lives with her husband of forty-five years, and looks forward to completing their earthly lifetime together.
“Honor and Memory”
In Honor and Memory of my mother and father, William Howard and Susie Marie Brown: The author’s memory of her beloved father has not diminished since his passing several years ago.
Her mother, surrounded by family members and caring friends, very quietly and peacefully passed away during the preparation of this book. As she was being escorted to heaven by God’s Soul Collectors, the angelic presence was felt by all.
She is and will be very much missed by those who knew and loved her.
“Goodbye mother - for now - until we meet again.”
