Final installment added

My mother’s account of life with Virgil and the birth of all three sons has finally been posted.  You can read the final part at Part VIII.

The photo at the bottom of this post captures my grandfather, Mason, and grandmother, Grace, with their five offspring: Gladys, Richard, Grace Wiley, Bill and my mother, Thelma.

Oh yes, the small interloper sitting on a log is yours truly.  Alice placed this family picture in a frame, and it sits prominently on my dresser bureau.

  1. I used to live next to your Grandmother on Scott Street. I am so glad you posted this picture. It brings back wonderful memories of her. She was a strong influence on me. I miss her. Regards. Kim Howard Howren.
