Thanks to all

I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Easter. My kids got to go to 4 egg hunts total so we now have candy to pass out at Halloween! Best of all at our church egg hunt on Sat. they got to hear the real celebration at Easter, that Jesus Christ rose again!! We watched a video in church on Sunday that shows what Christ went thru and says, "It was Friday, but Sunday's comin!" is just sends chills all over every time I see or hear that phrase.

I want to thank everyone that responded to my Potluck Recipe and sent their condolences abt. my Aunt Eva. The funeral yesterday was very simple and sweet and Bridges Funeral Home did a beautiful job. She had not been that pretty for some time due to being so fragile and weak. They dressed her in a gorgeous peach, lacy gown and she was so pretty. She wanted a closed casket, said, "I don't want people standing there staring at me!" but I wish everyone could've seen her. I posted a pic above of her holding her sister Lilly, her brother Terrell(he died from Polio), her sister Evie and my grandmother Cleo, on the far right with her arm thrown behind her head. This was in early 1927 since Lilly is still a small baby. My 91 year old Aunt Evie says they were dirt poor but didn't know it! I love old pics like this and am trying to collect all that I can before they are destroyed by unknowing hands.
