GrandMother remained sick for some before the 50's.
I was only 5 or 6 years old at this time
Dr. Jubal Watts from Bowdon, Ga. would come by to treat her
Dr. Wright from Heflin came also sometimes.
Aunt Lula Barr lived just above her.
There were many from the Champion Family who lived nearby.
The doctors said she had cancer
I remember folks at the funeral saying "won't be long until they can cure cancer"
There were many flowers at the funeral, me and some of the other kids were playing around them.
I broke out and could not quit scratching, they carried me to Dr Wright in Heflin.
Dr Wright's office was a long narrow office inside the drug store.
He used some kind of cream on me, "it worked".
I also remember the old wood stove she had. Stove wood was edge strips from the sawmill.
Grandaddy stacked em up neat, Us kids played with them a lot.
