You ever heard the phrase, "Oh, she thinks he hung the moon! " Well, not only do I think my Dad hung the moon, but he asked me where I wanted each star to go, and he placed them there - or at least he was close enough to God to make some strong suggestions :) . That should give you an idea of how I felt about my Daddy. When I was a little girl, I remember my Dad always being in a line of business that allowed him to work with his hands. So my first memories of him working, was behind the counter, servicing customers at Building Service, a building supply store in West Point, MS. I remember stopping by after school with my Mom, just to say hi, and I even sat on the counter sometimes. It wasn't a big deal to ME at the time, and that is one of the blessings in this history that my Daddy made. As a little girl, because of him, I thought that it just regular that you work any where you wanted. It never crossed my mind that what he was doing was a BIG DEAL, and that he was a trailblazer in his own right. It has only been in the last few years that my Mom made me aware of this fact. It made me proud, but I wasn't surprised, because my Daddy always made me proud.
