Rest in Peace

W. Woodrow Tyler, the eldest son of Luther Edward Tyler and Nellie Jane Henderson Tyler died on March 2, 2008 at the age of 91 years old. I'll miss you, Uncle Woodrow. You body lies in rest in a beautiful country cemetery beside your wife, Dorothy James Haas Tyler and near your young daughter Veda Marie. Your brother, Wade, plans to join you soon.

Douglas Kemp, aged 70 years, passed from this world on March 13, 2008. He is survived by Fred, his 'faintly red' cat and a few friends who knew very little about him. There are no known relatives. The first time I met Doug, I said to myself, "There's a big book there, and someday I will write it." Now it is too late to interview Doug and Fred isn't talking. May your soul rest in eternal peace - something that seemed to evade you on this earth. (Just want you to know that Miss Minnie and I are feeding Fred.)

Thanks for the garlic and the flowers and for crawling under the house to check for water leaks.
