Arie and Joe were my husband's maternal great-grandparents. He doesn't remember Joe but remembered Arie very well. He said she taught him to read at a young age and remembers visiting her in Orlando after Joe died and she was living with her daughter (Bob's grandmother), Leola. Leola and Arie also would drive to Nashville from Orlando and visit. He has very fond memories of her.

Wow, Janice! I had no idea. I have been so out of things for a while with my eyesight and the work I'm doing as Historian for our "50 Year Club" in Mineral Wells - my high school alma mater - that I've not been keeping up with my blogging community like I should. I truly appreciate the nomination and am really excited about the possibility of being voted on by readers.
