Little Tait's Preemie Fund

Little Tait Zimmerman was born weighing 2 pounds 9 ounces (1170 grams), and measuring 14ΒΌ inches long. He spent the first three months of his life in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

His parents, whom we met on a history tour, are currently attempting to raise $51,644 by June 3rd. If not that amount will raise to the original total of $186,769 and be turned over to a collection agency.
With God's blessing and the help of the body of Christ, it can be done!

"He is Risen!" Easter 2009

Poppy's and Grandmom's houses are next door to each other. Every year the Easter Egg Hunt has been held at Poppy's house and then Easter dinner at Grandmom's. This year we went ahead and held the Easter Egg hunt at Poppy's. We had pictures and flowers from the funeral put throughout the house.

In Loving Memory of Great-Grandfather, Alfred Jones

Father and daughter

Reunited with his sister

July 11, 1919---April 3, 2009
In the early hours of the morning Jesus saw fit to take Poppy home. It was unexpected and a shock to everyone. We were able to be by his side as he slowly (over a couple hours) left this earth for a place where suffering and sorrow is no more.
His wife was the love of his life. They are now together forever.
His family was his life and joy and he was always there to talk to when we needed someone.
He loved and proudly served his country with devotion, loyalty and honor. He taught us that freedom is never free and must be fought for and protected. Pop, you are now with your brother that willingly sacrificed his life for our country so we can have the freedom we hold today. Even though our country never found him like you had hoped for, (MIA/POW North Korea) you found him first, in Glory.
Poppy your life, leadership, advise, your stories and your love will always be treasured and cherished in our hearts. They are now memories that we will always hold dear.
Thank you Pop, you were everything that any family could ever wish for. You lived a life well lived.
One last time.....
Pop, we love you forever and always.
..weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Psalm 30:5b

Starting Garden Work

We are loving spring and all the new life it brings! In the last month we have been slowly adding to our garden.
