    James received great pleasure from his grandchildren.  Even to his last days.  The more of them he could get in his room and on his bed the happier he was.  Their noise was music to his ears.
    Altie was truly a pioneer woman. Although her life span was short, she made contact with many through her willingness to lend a helping hand in times of sickness and trouble. She was jovial and always had a smile in times of trouble.
