Photo at Bethel COC
Hey Len,
Took several pics of Beverly Cannon's tombstone and sent them to you yesterday. I would have sent the pic of the church sign, but someone else uploaded one the day before. Use them as you wish.
Take care,

RE: Your Mom is on Youtube
HI Len,
Yes; she was interviewed a little over a year ago by one of the sisters at University City Church of Christ and the video was later uploaded to youtube as a two-segment piece.
She told me that this had taken place, but because she and Daddy weren't computer savvy, I don't believe she was able to see it at their home.
It's really sweet, but the background noise overpowers the audio on occasion.
I'm very grateful to the young lady who took the time to record Mom's thoughts as a learning tool for role of young Christian women, but also for our family.
I believe her name is Latoya and Mom thought the world of her. Goes to show you how young Christians have an impact on older Christians.

RE: Photo of Sign and Church Building
Hey Len
I will be up around the area next week. I'll see what I can do about both requests. If I am not able this time, I will be returning a little later (probably July) and will get and send the shots to you so that you can use them as you like. Dad has Alzheimer's and it's difficult to make promises when each day brings its little surprises.
As always, good to touch base with you.
Take care,

RE: Bethel Church of Christ
Hey Len,
I should be in the area around the 10th of June; Dad has a dental appt. in Trenton. If time permits, I'll be more than happy to take a pic and send it.
Hope all is going well for you.
Take care,

RE: Hi Jenny
Hey, Len!!!
How are you doing? Hope you and your family are well. We're at the river house at the springs until Friday to be with my folks until Bible camp starts for the kids. So, I can't communicate via email until we return home.
As for Tony, he is buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery (ID 104437523) in Archer, not too far from my grandparents. Not sure if the birth year on his marker is correct; he told me that he lied about his age to get into the military, but that may have preceded WWII.
I saw the sweet message you left for Allie (nee Prevatt) Lindsey, who was my great aunt. I wish I could recall her but I was too young when she passed.
Your grandparents' place is still there, but not up to the standards they kept it, I'm sorry to say. They were wonderful, generous people. I'll always remember Bro. Doke taking his afternoon dip in the boil to cool off after working in his garden.
You should bring your family down to the springs for a visit; it hasn't changed that much. Be sure to stop and visit my folks if you do; they would be happy to see you and your family.
Take care,
