Born at the home of my Grandparents located in Deckers Hollow, Tyrone, Pa. Then returning to my parents home in Birmingham, PA just a mile from our first home that was located some distance from the village. You may find it interesting to learn that our first home was a log cabin with the bedroom/living room and the kitchen in the other room. The man that owned the cabin had to move because of his job and my dad rented the home for $5.00 a month. (yes 5 dollars)… Dad moved us to a small home next to my grandparents back in Decker Hollow. My early years was filled with sickness, you name it I had it.
Then in 1955 my dad moved us to South Lyon, MI where he worked for and retired from the City.

Cherished memories will never fade, because one loved is gone. Those we love can never be, more than a thought apart, for as long as there is a memory, they live with in our heart.
