I am not sure of the day. my oldest brother said mom and dad was married 3month after he was born. he don't know the day, SO I WOULD SAY THE DATEIS 8-15-1934 THAT IS MY BROTHER BIRTHDAY. His birth is May 15, 1934 and 8,15,1934 is 3mo. after he was born.
To my grandfather:

That in I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the Heaven, and as the sand
which is upon the sea shore: and the seed shall passes the gate of his enemies.----Genesis 22:17

As for me, behind, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.--Genesis 17:4

Just as God has blessed Abraham, He has also blessed you.
Truly you are a father of many nations. God has blessed you to see your forth generation"fifth" generation. When i would come to a family gathering, i would stand and watch you seated in the yard, your eyes sparking and a smile a on your face as you watched each one of your children, prancing across the yard.
Your spirit will still be with us at every gathering,
weather it is big or small. But now your spirit will not be planted in your yard, but you will travel to all of them; at each one of our gatherings you will be
You are our father and our life, to leave us behind i know will be a great fight, You have raised us up in the right way, so go home father and we will not hold you back. Although we will miss you very much, you had done your job
on this earth and I'm sure these are you just word to us.

I have fought a good fight, I have finish my curse, I have kept the faith; Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the lord, the righteous Jude, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. ---Timothy 4:7-8

So now go home father, and be with your wife, say hello for us, then let God tell you about you fight............

Ozzie Alexander Ashe for my father death on
December 09.2006
Dad, You work so hard for us now your grand and great-grand are doing well..Dad, we your children thank you. This is what true love will do...

My dad, mother pass giving birth to his baby brother, And at a later date, Dad father,grandmother and his brother pass away, and he was a long at a young age.
Later Dad, Married my mom in 1933 the same year the first son was born "said my older brother" and together they had 21 children and 6 more grandchildren that two sister pass away also. And dad come home from work, He was always working and making and doing thing around the house for his children, and will give us any what he have. But he could not read or write. But my Dad took good care of us. But at the end Dad gave up because he couldn't,t do for himself..that was sad. We gather around his bed for 3 mo. giving him the same love that he gave all of us and his grandchildren. Why dad gave up I don t know...we would have waited on him forever, giving him the same love that he gave all of the children and grandchildren, Dad was a good dad and a Grandfather. He never would leave us with no one, we never had sleep over it was always our dad and mom. On a holiday's dad stay home. He may miss one of his the children. We had together in his front yard all the time. Don t talk about the wild food we ate we had it all. I NEVER KNOW DAD to asked for help from the government. and my children is like that today, we work for what we wont. We was told that by dad. He was my heart when I was little. It was my joy to have him around, making ice cream or killing hogs or working in the garden and I would be right with him. He never said go away no matter what he was doing Dad would show you how to do it, AT His time he though working for what you wanted is all you need, So he didn't send us to school in Mississippi. HE DID KNOW....but he had love and always with his children and grandchildren. It was because of me, Dad came to Florida. I Had a child and both Me and my child DAD was to young, so me and the baby came to Florida and she did well in school. At the time dad pass the youngest child was in her 40,s. GOD gave my dad to us a long time...Dad was age 92. The picture on dad obituary was taken Nov,22,2006 just 16days before his passing. I wonted that obituary made of my Dad, I cant spell that well but like my dad, I wonted that 6 page obituary for my dad and I did it. I love my mom, But dad and my sister Lula Irby was my life...........I know what it take to get where I am and where I came from, But I don t know how mom and dad did it with the children.

Each time we embrace a memory, we meet again with
those we love, For the HEART never forget.

God give us strength to beat it all and courage to take the blow. But what it meant to lose you DAD no one will ever know
Blessing is the king who come in the name of the lord peace in heaven and glory in the highest.

Dad is near
The sound of our father's voice, the strength of our Dad hands, the kindness of our Dad eyes, the comfort of our Dad presence, When we remember these things, Dad will be near. Dad you're always in our hearts.
