Boatman conducted the dedication ceremony. He and friends and other family enjoyed a delicious lunch prior ) the ceremony. By Velma Dunson Rhodes Ever since I was a little girl, I remember always staying next door to "Aunt Daisy" and Uncle Robert. As a matter of fact, I stayed at their house as much as I stayed at my own. Few people could tell the Dawsons from the Dunsons. You couldn't tell who were sis- ters and who weren't because of the love and closeness that we shared. Everyone had a designat- ed playmate and mine was Rose. Everywhere Rose went, I went. When she went the night with her aunts, I did too. Aunt Daisy did not make any difference in us. She treated us as if we Were her own kids. Many meals have I eaten at her house, and many Sunday evenings I visited her while visiting my mother after I grew up. She's well known in the Corinth community and well loved by all who know her. She played an active part in my life while I was growing up. She was a role model for many of us.She gave respect and she earned respect. She played am active part in my spiritual development, a spiritual mentor, I might say. She left an impact on my life that is not easily forgot- ten. She has meant a lot to the Dunson family. She has been a neighbor, a mother figure since my mother passed, a baby sitter, a cook, a telephone companion, a burden bearer ;ville High Class of Reunited at Ramada The Hogansville High of 1942 met at the Inn in LaGrange on 30 and 31. A delicious dinner was on Saturday night with and talking afterwards. Halloween theme was used ;afish- P*icture taking. All members spending the oined together for break- on Sunday morning before Those attending were: Raymond and Alice Couch of Montgomery, Alabama; Jack and Mildred Diggs of Roswell; Thomas and Jenelle Green McLarty of Chamblee; Julia Hodnett Stone of Atlanta; Lindsey Johnson of Stone Mountain; Christine Johnson Wilson of Marietta; Faye Smith Higgenbotham of Warner Robins; Faye Moore Trussell of Fairburn; Emmett and Joan and lifter, a nurse, a taxi cab and, for some of us, even a mid- wife. During my adolescent years, I keenly remember all the singing and all the choir rehearsals we used to do, mak- ing sure everything was A-ok for the special occasion.. All the Easter programs, all the poems, the plays, the speeches. People would come for miles around to hear Harmonia Easter programs. She was also the youth advi- sor for the church. I will never forget all the youth meetings, all the different churches we would attend and the many acquaintances we met because of her. She is indeed a virtuous woman well worth her weight in gold. A woman that is not easy to find, a rare species, one of a kind. She reminds me so much of one of my favorite passages in the Bible. The greatest of these is love. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels and have not love, I am become as sounding bass or a tingling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy and under- stand all mysteries and all knowledge and though I have all faith so that I could remove mountains and have not love it profiteth me nothing. Love suffereth long, is kind; love envieth not. Love vauteth not itself, is not puffed up. To me, that verse reminds me of her.She is a kind, gen- tle, meek, caring, giving, hum- ble and compassionate woman. She is a woman of strength, enduring the deaths of her hus- band and three of her children. These things would have left some people devastated, but she never lost her trust in God. Her faith never wavered. Instead she got stronger. I've never seen this woman angry or upset to the point within reasoning.she laughed with us when we laughed. She cried with us when we cried. Our pains have been her pains. Our tears have been her tears. Love is the tie that binds the Dunsons and the Dawson family together. Like any other family, we have had our ups and downs, but through it all, love would bring us back together again. Aunt Daisy, on behalf of the Dunson family, we want to tell you that we admire you,we respect you, but most of all,we love you from the bottom of our hearts. And we say thank you for being there for us all these years and for the many deeds you have done in and before my lifetime. May God bless you on your birthday and may you have many, many more to come.
