Memories Timeline


  1. I was so sorry to hear about your Dad. I remember him plowing our garden when we first moved here. He will be missed. Our prayers are with you and your family.

  2. Tina and Trina–I’m so sorry to hear of Pappy’s passing. I’ll never forget that smile and that laugh, nor how much he loved you all. He was a blessing to so many people and we were so very fortunate to have him in our lives. (I have to admit, though, it didn’t hurt my feelings a bit when he finally got rid of those wicked geese that chased me every time I came up there to see you girls!!)

    You were very blessed to have a Daddy AND a Mama who loved you so completely and fully. I know they’re together tonight, walking and talking in Heaven. I can’t wait till we ALL get to visit with them again.

  3. Tina and Trinia: What a reunion your Dad must be having in heaven – with Billie, Granny, and all the other relatives. Will never forget all the fun times we had growing up and even before you girls were born – the things your Mom and Dad did for me – motorcycle ride on parkway with Gedwin, your Mom bringing me little treats – bags of candy, extra things, and they both were always a lot of fun – and hard workers. Remembering you and your families – cherish the memories. Gerald has lots of memories with both your parents as well. Carolyn and Gerald

  4. Just a few lines to let you know that we are thinking of all of you. We are going to miss him a whole lot too. We love and miss all of you. A prayer will be said for all of you from us.

  11. To my two girls: Heaven gets sweeter each day. God just takes the best. I don’t understand it but I guess I am not supposed to. Remember, I will always love you and be there for you. Gedwin was never happy after his precious Billy left. Now his journey is complete. Can’t you just imagine him, Billie and Bill standing there looking down on us and saying, ‘Lord! what kind of meaness will they get into since we are all gone>’ I loved them dearly and I love both of you just like I do my own and Nelson and Vaughn also. Know you are a very special part of my life. Barbara Plemmons

  12. Sorry to hear about the loss of Gedwin, he was always a good friend of the family.Our prayers are with you both.

  13. We are very sorry for the loss of Mr. Morgan. My family and I have always thought of Gedwin as a very nice man. After all these years my wife and the kids still remember those geese he had! I can remember taking the kids down the road to show them the geese before we had any. I recall too getting thown off my horse in the front yard with Billie and Mrs. Lance watching. I’ll bet Gedwin got a laugh out of that when they told him! His smile will be missed around here. Our thoughts are with you all.

  14. Tina and Trina,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Many of my childhood memories revolve around Billie and Gedwin and growing up on Morgan Branch. We had some good times. I will treasure them always.

    Melba (and Dad.)
