Autos of beauty
For today, (Tuesday):
I was fortunate to meet Sherry. She attended a church that my dad came to pastor, his last church. After a year of so we got more acquainted so much so that I proposed. I was 17 she was 18. We were married September 22, 1956.
She has brought two sons into our home. The first was named me Junior. That is strange because My name is Jackie. I was happy with the name until someone told me Jackie was a girl’s name. Then I did not like my name. Then how did this dude stick his son with Jackie Jr. I don’t know. LOL
Just yesterday Sherry sent me after flowers for her parent’s grave. She changes flowers twice a year. My parents are buried about 40 miles from here. Until the death of my Brother Junior, he put flowers on mama and dad’s graves. I have done it a couple years but that is all.
When we are away Sherry will send one of the grands the money to get flowers for Susie and Wiley’s graves.
I had mentioned to Jack Jr. the other day that we didn’t put flowers on my mom and dad’s graves. But that my brother Junior did. Well we got an e-mail a couple days ago that said, “How does that look?”
Then the picture appeared of mom and dad’s grave. There were flowers on it. The e-mail said, “Now another Jr. has put flowers there!”
It brought tears to our eyes of course, just to know he remembered.
