Personal note: Biddie Ann Given Gay divorced Augustus Gay when James (Jim) Gay, was about 10 years old. She then raised her 4 children on her own. Biddie ran a rooming house. She "loved the Lord and loved people". Biddie died while Jim was serving in World War II. He did get to come home for the funeral. Biddie is buried alongside her mother, dad and siblings in the historic cemetery in Charleston, WV.
Visiting Bob's ancestors' graves was a time for he and brother David to reminisce about Memorial Day when they were kids when they made a similar trek. First, they'd load up the mower, trimmer and watering cans, then go to Spring Hill Cemetery where Bob's paternal Grandmother is buried. The cemetery now has perpetual care so there was no trimming here today, only pleasant memories shared between brothers.
