Memories From:

Dale Descant:  Aunt Nora and Uncle Clave lived only a block from where I grew up.  Aunt Nora would let me move plants and stuff around.  She was always in her yard.  Her front porch had more plants than you'll find at any Lowes.  Uncle Clave would let me grind corn with his hand operated grinder.  Uncle Clave was a very smart man.
