Wow! Is there more to your grandmother's story that isn't showing up?

I LOVE MY FAMILY - MRS. BEULAH MAE ROWE - "FAMILY HEROIC TALE"

Thanks so much for the comments! I certainly do have a lot more to tell in the story and; must apologize to my readers; but, I've been very busy this month...more than usual for some reason....and, believe it or not, two tornadoes hit this Austin and San Antonio area this past week....It was really crazy...we are still cleaning up...I am so lucky the tree outside my window didn't fall or something...the wind was making trees sway....I sat and watched the storm clouds all night and the thunder and lightening was so loud...I just thank The Lord my family made it through the storm...

I will work on finishing the story this weekend in a couple of posts...thanks for reading...
