My father and mother, Daisy Mahon Adaway, married in 1941, divorced in 1958, then remarried in 1964 and stayed married until his death in 1995. Daddy worked in the refineries until he started working construction as a carpenter. He could build anything, from the smallest item to an entire house. At an advanced age, in his 70's when he decided he needed to retire from construction, he went to work at Wal-mart in Orange, Tx. where he worked until the last 3 yrs. of his life when he was diagnosed with stomach cancer. He worked in the garden section and loved to talk and visit with customers and employees alike. Four children,David, Bill, Daisy, and Mary. Eight grandchildren, David, Tessa, Micheal,Kimberly (deceased), LeRoy, John, Brian, and Brandy. Nine great-grandchildren, Anthony, Samantha, Kemberlee, Brett, Brandon, Roy Lee, Kassie, Toby, and more to be added. The birth scroll on the headstone was carved wrong, but we were told that once carved it can't be changed, the whole stone must be replaced. Since we all lived out of state, no one found it until it was too late. If you have time, please visit my Mama's and other relative's pages.

To Daddy

You cried sweet tears,
Upon my birth,
You gave me life,
Upon this earth.

You led the way,
Toward right not wrong,
So kind, so handsome,
So caring, so strong.

The day draws near,
Your time has come,
I can't let go,
But your work is done.

Please God give me strength,
My Father, my Friend,
Take him to your heart,
As his life comes to an end.

His smile, his face,
He was my world,
Good by sweet Daddy,
Love from....Your Little Girl.
