    I lost my oldest brother. I was brought up to say I should not be selfish. bout loosing love to death. they had gone to do more of lord works. We was faithful family to church and and friends. we thought to love in the wholly spirit . define gods love as family.
    we didn’t get share much time when returned home from service. but what little time we did. to be round each other was mostly peaceful as family. as loving family that we shared family time. we remolded the family home we had grown up in . it turned out as nice day it built in 1945, my mother father had built at 2512 Lewis Lane 3/4 mile out town. it was open fields all around it. it time since the whole town moved towards them and past them as city of Owensboro KY had grown. it nice loving family home.
    but the USA was in depression in round the times. it was easy life .
    And father labored at Gilmore for 35 years. Greg was the first child in the family.
    with best education. but he never teaches or or help with the younger kids. or least didn’t help me. but past judgment towards me as his new family could not do no wrong that say milady. Love care for the family .may he rest in peace.
