The Value.......


You never truly know the value of a moment until you realize it's the last one you'll have. I sometimes find myself thinking about and missing Uncle Chuck, wishing he was still around to drop in on, in Red Level, Alabama. I place high value on this man's soul, simply because of who he was to me. I can't speak to or for anyone else's relationship with Uncle Chuck. He was great to me.


As I think about him, and others who have graduated this phase of life, I can't help but think of how invaluable their souls are. I ponder the things learned from folks like Uncle Chuck, Uncle Frank, Aunt Stella, Uncle Butch, Grandmomma, and many more. I am convinced that we, the left behind, are commissioned to increase the values of our own souls to that of theirs and even greater. I strongly believe that it's our duty to do and be better than those before us. That's true progress right?


It is my aim to represent my departed kin and loved ones, in ways that they will admire and be proud of. Thank you, Uncle Chuck, for always showing interest in my writing and requiring more of me. I shall write, write, and write some more. As you said, "Country Boys Don't Lie."


I say "Country Boys Don't Die", as I carry a piece of you, in me.......


Those who have ears to hear, let them hear.......
