Life Story -- Father's Traits -- Grandma Anna

Written Monday, March 31, 2008”

What are your father’s best traits?  His worst? The traits you share?

“My father was different.  Not gentle and kind like my mother.  I was always afraid of him.  My mother’s maiden name was Berry and he would say my brother, Deaton, and I were just like the Berry’s.  It didn’t bother me because I was just as afraid of Grandma McCray as I was my Dad. 
“I do know that he had a brilliant mind.  If he needed a part for something, he was overhauling and he couldn’t buy one anyplace, he just made his own.  Our son, Jim, had those same qualities.”
