            The purpose of this book is not to embarrass or slander anyone in recording events of my early life, which I believe were unique in the circumstances I experienced.  Through the years I have come to dearly love all of my relatives and appreciate the people with whom I was associated, both living and deceased.  Whatever happened in my life, God turned into something beneficial and beautiful.  Life is a great teacher; and in the mellowness of age, I find it worthwhile.  My advice to anyone is to understand that nothing lasts.  Change is inevitable. Only God, his eternal precepts for living, and the soul entrusted to a person will last forever.  Choice is the great privilege given to each person.
