Overview

Although I wanted to honor my dad in this book, I also wanted to preserve a history for future generations. The world is constantly changing, and the strength and simple joys that we had several years ago sometimes seem to get lost in the hustle and bustle of today's world. Life was harder then, but the simple things in life were good enough to keep us going, along with a faith in a loving and kind God. I am hoping that by sharing these memories, it will show the strength of family, the joy that family can bring, and the love that should never get lost.

Many of us have family stories and antics we treasure in our memories. Most of mine involve my dad with his songs and poetry.Remembering (second edition) is a collection of these memories. The first edition of this book was simply a recitation of those poems and songs. Some of the songs were written by Dad, yet many were songs he heard his daddy sing as he was growing up on the farm in the 1920s and 30s. With the second edition, I have taken it a bit farther. Many of the poems written had stories that went along with them, which have been included. Where possible the history behind some of the music and variations to the lyrics has been included. Additionally, I have added family stories and history; both bad and good; happy and sad. These memories of love, laughter, heartache and struggles should not be forgotten over time. This second edition also includes poetry that had been lost previously and some additional poetry from Daddy's aunts, children and grandchildren.
