MEMORIES: (by Emma Lee Wollam)

We have a very loving and close family. One of my fondest memories was
Christmas eve. My mother and father always made it special for us by giving
each of us a lunch sack with fruit and goodies. These were sent to anyone that
could not be home on Christmas even during the war. This continued to be a
practice of my parents until my mother left us. Even her in-laws, her grand
children and great grand children were included.

I grew up during the depression and we didn't have much, but we always had a
home which my mother lived in until she died and were never cold or hungry. We
had a lot of fun in our life. One thing I remember fondly was how my uncle Ora
and Aunt Louise always saw that we were able to go places until we were old
enough to have boy friends or an older brother to take us. We were fortunate
to have two loving parents that loved each other dearly and took good care of
us.

My earliest memories of my grand parents was the home they lived in on land
which is now a part of the Danbury school grounds. Large chinaberry
trees surrounded the back of the house. They were a play ground for us.
There was a closed in porch on the back of the house that had a pitcher pump
and sink to pump the water for house use and dishes. I take after my
grandmother in size and looks and have part of her name Emma. She was a very
wonderful Christian. Their home was always open to students living a distance
from school. If they felt ill during the day they were welcome there. I had
one friend that would stay two or three days sometimes. My grandfather always
had a garden and always had strawberries for the school children. He was
dearly loved by me. I'll never forget his big hugs.
