Visiting My Love Cousins 2005

After departing from Lineville, we went to Lafayette, Al to visit cousin Sara Love Harper, daughter of Sam Love, my Moms older brother. She was recuperating from knee replacement surgery. After visiting with her, we contacted her brother Hiram Love in Lanett, Al. It was only about 30 minutes away on the Alabama, Georgia State line. What fun to see him again after about 54 years! After visiting with Hiram and his wife for a couple of hours, it was getting late and I had promised another cousin, Barry Love who lived in LaGrange, Ga. that I would try and contact him for dinner that evening! I called Barry, and  by happenstance he was only about 5 minutes away, driving a truck! After a joyful visit we all went to a local B-Q Restaurant across the Chatahoochee River in Ga. for dinner! What a fun and exciting day for all three of us Loves!
Hiram and his wife Doris being silly! Hiram is now retired! He served in the military, worked for Sears Co. owned an Antique Store and had a Gospel show on a local PBS station.

After we said goodbye to our cousins, Marlene and I took one more trip to Wetumpka, Al. where my grandfather George F. Love died, looking for his gravesite, it was all for naught! The next day we stopped in Talladega, Al. to visit our cousin Huel Love widow Betty. She was not available, so we stopped at the Cemetery to pay our respects. His parents Wilbern and Mattie Love are also buried there. Aunt Mattie lived to be just over 100 years old!!
