Uncle George was a guy who loved to laugh. He let me go to church with him and he let me stand up on the bench by the side of him. I was only four or five and he was visiting with us. We went to West End Baptist Church and I liked him and wanted to be with him. I would stand up and sing (I could not read but I just made a noise when everyone else was singing. I like it. Uncle George would just smile at me. My brother and sister would not sit with me. That day I was doing what I called sing and I fell off the bench and hit the floor. Wesley and Thelma, My older brother and sister turn there heads and would not look at me. Uncle George picked me up and put me back on the bench.

After we moved to Waller I would visit with him when he would come to our store. He seem to always have a smile on his face. Most of his pictures he is smiling.

He died on a Saturday morning and the funeral home came and got him prepared him and then took him back home and placed him in the parlor of the his house.

That Saturday night it came a real bad storm and it flooded a lot of the country. This was before we had farm to market roads. Some of the roads would wash out in places and make it almost impossible to drive anywhere. My brother had a 1927 Model T he bought when he came out of the service after the war. My dad and Uncle Giles and Wesley (my brother) and I got into the model T and followed the hearse from the funeral home to his house from Waller. They were afraid that it might rain some more and that they would not be able to get him out the next day. They were going to take him to Appleby, Texas where he was to buried at Bethel cemetery the next afternoon.
Well, we had some trouble getting to his house. We had to go through some high water. The Model T would go right through as had the large wheels. We loaded him and brought him back to Waller and placed him in Uncle Jim Haney's living room for that Sunday night and the next morning he was loaded and they drove him to Appleby.

I always think of that trip to get him going through the water. He would have thought it was funny, I guess, at us worrying about him getting to Appleby on time. I did not get to go to the funeral but I wanted to. He was buried between two of his wives. I just wish I would have sense enough to ask him about a lot of things about people and he knew and his dad. I thought he was a Great Guy.

Uncle George lived to be 73 years,10 months and 12 days old.
