My Mom had a short, hard life. She had me when she was only
15, just a child, herself really. After she had me, and would take me to town with her, she said people would stop her and say "oh, what a pretty little sister you have"

Her first husband, Billy Joe Metcalf was pysically and mentally abusive to her- it took 9 yrs. to get away from him, by then, she had 3 more children. My Mom had many hardships, and made alot of sacrafices for us. She was a great Mom, I miss her so very much.
Kids from this marriage:
Patrcia "Trish" Ann (Holaway),
Bobby Joe,
David Dwayne, &
Wanda Faye (Szarmach) Metcalf.

Her second marriage to Dale Bates. He was phycially abusive to her also. Marriage lasted about 6 months.

Her third husband was a husband was BOB DUNN. This man was my "DAD" in every way that counts. Please stop by and visit his page.
They had- Kenneth "Kenny" Ray Dunn.

Her last marriage was to Raymond Baker. They were married about 10 years, before she passed away. I wish I say this was a happy marriage, while he never hit her, he was verbally abusive to her, when he drank. And, he drank alot!

The photo (not showing) is the oldest picture I have of my Mom. Date unkown, she must of been 4 or 5. She is sitting in her Dad's lap.

The rocking chair she is sitting in, belonged to her Mother.I have lots of memories of Grandma,in that chair.
I now, own and cherish this rocker.

She is holding her fav. pup, "Cocoa", in the other picture.
Mom loved toy poodles.

And, she loved Elvis- oh, did she love Elvis!! She loved him so much, in fact, there were times in my life, I have been actually jealous of him!! I do hope she is dancing with him right now in heaven.

She was the oldest, and only girl, of 5 children. Two of her brothers, and her parents are also buried here in "Shirley's Rest Haven" Please stop by, and leave a flower, for them. JAMES HOWARD EDDIE, and LOYD CLAYTON EDDIE. Her other 2 brothers, are living.

A very special Thank you to Shuree Burgess for touching up the photo of my Mom and Grandaddy. That was so nice of you to do!!

I'd also like to thank, Denise, for the wonderful, photo of Elvis with my Mom's name on it. I love it!! I know she would have too.
Thank you so much for that!

To my friends,and anyone that leaves a flower or note for my Mom, you have my eternal graitude. It means so very much to me! Thank you all!!!!!!!!!
