hihi again
It's always good to hear from you. I love the information you left me. Any details about my Father is so important to me! I didn't know about the canteloupe job or Yuma/Phoenix.

We bought land here in Arizona in 1968 and would always 'check in' on it as we drove back to Arkansas from Watsonville, CA to visit Dad's family. Then a few years later we moved here to Arizona. (3 hours from Phoenix)

It was so hot. I wasn't used to anything about Arizona moving from California. I remember crying over tacos and enchiladas! Silly, huh?! Now, they are my favorite food!

I have pics of Dad at work in the bus barns and with some of his coworkers in Watsonville area. He worked for the school district there too driving bus and in the bus barns/maintenance on the buses. We would take him lunch every day and I would hide in the back of the VW under a big quilt and he'd pretend he didn't know I was there! Then I went to school in that district. I recall Dad actually driving bus for a baseball team a couple of times there too! When he'd come home with his heavy work coats on there would always be a treat in the pockets. One day it was a kitten I named after one of his coworkers!

Dad actually named me after a five year old little girl who rode his school bus. He liked the name, "Renee" so that's what I was called. My first name is after my maternal grandmother but I have never went by it! I've always went by "Renee" which I'm really glad about that!

Dad built some homes in Armona. I remember them when I was younger but I can't recall where they are located now - I sorta remember one being near the Cemetery, actually. I have been in one or two of them years back and I have been in the ones in Arkansas he built. He built two of his Mother's home.

Recently we had some old things stolen of Dad's -very sad time for Mom and me - but you can't prevent every sad thing, can you? I think I'll miss some of his fishing gear the most - I do still have the rods but the reels were stolen! One was an expensive deep sea reel. I think when someone dies we place a lot of importance on the things they loved - he really loved fishing!!! We would go to Monterey about every weekend it seemed! He built our camper!!!

My Aunt from Hanford (previously she lived in Armona and owned that bar in her younger days on the same street as Ralph's) came over last Thanksgiving - this year it was just quiet - the dogs, Mom and my husband.

I am always so glad to hear about you and your family and our 'connection' - I hope your Christmas is very happy and have a great month getting 'ready' for it! We already have Christmas parties starting this week!!! Yikes!

Smile! hUgs, Renee

I'm thrilled!!!

Even tho, I can only remember meeting Miss Soward once, I liked her a lot - the stories I heard about her and such.

We knew dad always visited his good friends - matter of fact, one of my favourite pics of dad (we'll have to find it and put it up!) was of him coming in on a Christmas Eve, all rainy and foggy and everyone waiting on him to open pressies!

(We always opened on Cedar Street at my maternal gramma's house on 12-24) and everyone was waiting on dad!!! That pic of him coming in the door was a welcome site!

I know he loved his pals/friends!

I can't wait to hear any stories Michael or dad has about my dad! Y'know he died when I was 12. Well, I'm 44 now! I still think he was the best dad in the world!

My brother, I haven't seen him in years, but he'd be about 65 years old now! The last time I saw him was in my teens and the last time I heard from him, got pictures, etc. was in my late 20's.

If you are from that area, you prolly know my Aunt Betty (on maternal side) she owned that bar in Armona for years. She lives in Hanford now with my cousins as well. She visited my mother in her new home here at Thanksgiving.

My family in Arkansas, I was in touch with them until dad's sister and brother passed away - which actually has been more recent. I need to put them all here on Find A Grave. I was real busy with the site when I first got on, then had some medical issues and was off here - now I'm back, so I really need to add a few more family members!

And now I know for sure Lorene is my family member! Yay! Thank you so much - hope you and your family and me can be friends and chat! Rx

Lorene Soward
I notice you added the gravestone pictures for Lorene and I added a flower on her grave - I believe she's my father's cousin. Did you know her and am I right about her living in Armona near Cedar street 20 plus years ago? Well, maybe more like 30 years. I only met her once if it was her, but I remember other details if you knew her, would be great to chat with you - hUgs, Renee
