Have not been lately. Seems like every time I run back/forth to Arkansas up that road it is either raining like crazy, I'm feeling bad, or it's over 90 & just can't take it! Do have a list printed though of what photos are missing and have added a few via local obits. I hope to finish it up this summer and will be sure to look for yours. Thanks, Sandi

Your Bio
Thank you for the note! I do appreciate your service in the Navy during WWII. Your bio is impressive, you had a hand in many new developments. I had Tomahawk Cruise missiles in my career.

Best of luck to you and yours! Fair winds and following seas...

I just saw the photos that you added for my Great Grandmother Winona Freeman, the first two (90th Birthday and in front of the house) were actually photographed by my dad. Are you related to the Freeman's?

RE: Earline Freeman
Hi Robert, I have made the correction, someone else had entered the information before it was transferred to me. Yes, Vernon and Corinne are my grandparents, Earline was my Great Aunt. Thanks for the pictures that you added!

RE: My Well Being
Glad to hear it! It is truly my honor and privilege to "visit" with your family ~ no thanks needed at all. Have a safe holiday weekend. As a confederate belle, I've got lots going on this weekend. Take care.
