A/K/A "Pat" Arnold


At birth, we boarded the train of life and met our parents, and we believed that they would always travel by our side. However, at some station, our parents would step down from the train, leaving us on life's journey alone.

As time goes by, some significant people will board the train: siblings, other children, friends, and even the love of our life.

Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we won't realize that they vacated their seats! This train ride has been a mixture of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.

A successful journey consists of having a good relationship with all passengers, requiring that we give the best of ourselves. The mystery that prevails is that we do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. Thus, we must try to travel along the track of life in the best possible way -- loving, forgiving, giving, and sharing.

When the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty -- we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who continue to travel on the train of life.

Letís remember to thank our Creator for giving us life to participate in this journey.

I close by thanking you for being one of the passengers on my train!

Its' author is unknown to me. I thought it was worth sharing.

RE: Washington Chesterfield Ballard
Hi Pat,

Loucetta L. Lambert was Fannie's mother. I don't know of any full siblings, only half siblings.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Thank you/Obit request
Hi, thank you so much for honoring my grandmother Clara C. Seymour Fells. I found this website today and have been searching high and low for something on grandmother. I have long lost family in Brookhaven, MS. and I believe this may be the first step to reuniting. Once again, thank you so much! Also, would you be able to find a obit for Clara C.Seymour Fells?

Thank you,

Hi, sorry it took me a while to get back to you. I'm not sure where Caroline Townsend's parents are buried. I'll keep an eye out for them though. My 2nd Great Grandfather, Jacob M. Smith, helped move some of the Thames to Lawrence/Lincoln Co.

Pearl Safley Obit
Thank you for posting the obituary, I appreciate it. The Safley family has been my passion for over 44 years because of my mother-in-law, Willie Mae Safley Whitten who was the kindest and loving woman I ever knew.
