My Grandpa Bashlor never remarried

But my GrandMother did.


My Grandpa Bashlor was working for The Salvation Army in Houston,TX as a Chef/Cook.
He was driving a Salvation Army truck with food supplies. He was involved in an accident,a propane tank in the back of the truck exploded,the truck caught fire and turned over,he had 3rd degree burns and died in the hospital.My GrandMother and Family was not notified in time before he died.The Salvation Army paid his burial expenses.The accident happened just outside of Houston,Texas (Goliad,TX.,Now part of the Metropolitan Area of Victoria,TX.)in July 26,1954.


God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad

Note: At this time there is not a Marker or Headstone for my GrandPa Bashlor . But I have the wheels turning to get a Marker for him, since he is a World War II Veteran.The Veterans Administration will have one made up at No Charge and sent to the Cemetery Office. The only Charge is a "Setting Fee" charged by the Cemetery for placing it in the ground at his grave site.
