Howard Dewey Darnell, A cousin ALL the FAMILY knows.

               Shirley, Dewey and Harold

  Memorable Automobiles from The Past:

This is the first car of Irvin and Bert I remember the '48 Buick, it had a Horrible ending, a bad wreck.

           Aunt Bert and Dewey (Before Dewey got OLD!)

For today:

I knew him as Dewey. Now he is Howard (His first name), which happens in working in the military and government. He worked for the CBI (California Bureau of Investigation SHHHHHH don’t tell anyone!)

Dewey lives in Las Vegas at present, he has the secret system for winning but was sworn to secrecy, so he won’t tell me. He has a dream of living in Taiwan. He enjoys dressing oriental at times and has taken us out to eat at fancy oriental eating places in San Francisco and LV. We always visited him when making a swing over to the last coast.

Cousin Dewey's knowledge of the Darnell, O’Shields, Fulbrights and Harbinsons on the East coast is the personality trait that stands out. No matter what happens in the family he keeps us up to date. We were away from the First coast for many years and his ‘letters, notes, e-mails and messages’ kept us up to date, no matter where he lived.

I can never thank him enough for keeping me informed of my kin from 5 or 3000 miles away  He is normally the first to let us know.

With this Covid crap stuff funerals and visitations have been severely impacted. The latest AFPB (All Family Points Bulletin) informed us of the passing of my double ‘kin’ cousin, Bobby O’Shields.  Bobby was a gentle soul, intelligent and loving. However he was the first person to introduce me to PBR beer. He WE stole took a bottle off a beer truck that was stopped at Uncle Irvin’s store making a delivery. We then ran across the road to the woods. Hot Pabst Blue Ribbon, UCCCK. We just tried to swallow some for a taste. NASTY!

I JUST WANTED TO THANK HOWARD DEWEY FOR ALL HE DOES. THANKS DUDE! We out here on the first coast appreciate all your investigative and social skills. Love ya! And YES everyone will miss Bob!


PS: Now, I need to know the SYSTEM to win in Vegas????

I'm sorry for your loss but I'm glad you have someone to keep you informed. If he won't give you the winning secret maybe you can give him some cash and have him win some for you!

I started on COPD Herbal treatment from Ultimate Life Clinic, the treatment worked incredibly for my lungs condition. I used the herbal treatment for almost 4 months, it reversed my COPD. My severe shortness of breath, dry cough, chest tightness gradually disappeared. Reach Ultimate Life Clinic via their website I can breath much better and It feels comfortable!

So sorry for your family's loss! I think every family has a Dewey in it in one way or another. My sister is the one that keeps everyone informed here, which is nice of her considering how many cousins we have, not to mention second and third ones too.

I, too, am sure sorry about your loss. Cute acronym - All Family Points Bulletin. The last time I heard from a cousin was in 2012 (that) his sister had passed. Compared to most, our family unit is small. With the exception of Robert in Indiana, I suspect we 6 cousins merely tolerate one anothers' existence. Sad, but we've always lived so far apart we're little more than strangers.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

You havae some wonderful relative and it's nice you are always bragging on them. Dewey is a winner. and so nice he keeps you up to date. It's hard when families are on different coasts. Such good memories too. Hope you have meany more !

We also have a couple Dewey's. It's nice tho, to know we can always get informed of the family goings on. I'm so sorry about your loss. It's never easy loosing a piece of family. Cancers are the most dreaded and heart issues.
loven'hugs from up north where we just quit from another long-on-work day.
Stay happy, healthy and hugged.
