daughter of William Thomas Rowden - Palmyra "Myra" Wheat

"We celebrated our grandmother, Mrs. A.V. Brady's 89th birthday in fine fashion at the home of Mrs. Eddie Elliott at Breckenridge. There were 28 of us that came together and sang "Happy Birthday" to her as she was presented with an orchid for the occasion. At the refreshment table were her favorite colors of pink and white. Great-granddaughter Judy Elliott and Granddaughter Linda Shannon served pink punch and cake to her family and friends. Everyone gathered around the piano and we spent the afternoon singing her favorite hymns. Those at that special occasion were: Mr. and Mrs. Henry Jackson, Paula and James; Mr. and Mrs. Bill Gathings and Linda; Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Gathings, Marydale, Louise and Virgil, Jr., Mr. and Mrs. J.O. Gathings, Mr. and Mrs. O.L. Oliphant, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Brazelton, Mrs. Odus Cockburn, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Hardin and Marie Ratcliff, Billy Gathings, Charles Gathings. When I pause, in my memories, I can still hear the joy and laughter of that special occasion almost 45 years ago."
