My sweet, sweet Uncle Jake has given me so many wonderful memories. My mom was one of his sisters. They were always close. Several months ago, when I last visited with him, he said, "Jan,if you get to heaven before I do, please tell Kat and James that I love them." Well, Uncle Jake, you are visiting with them now, along with other family members who went before you. Save me a place at the family reunion; I will be joining you one day! You helped fill my life with so much joy and too many memories to share in this message. I love you and miss you terribly already. Your niece, Jan
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Lamar. He will be missed by all. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Rodger and family, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. You, your mom, and all of your family will be in my prayers.
Lamar was the first patient in Alabama to have the Stapes operation for his hearing loss. I performed the surgery in 1957. While on the operating table, he suddenly asked, "Did the clock just begin to tick?" I said, "No, Lamar, it has been ticking all along, but you just began to hear it!"
My operating room nurse was Mrs. Peggy Batchelor; and she and I have often spoken of that day, and always rememberd Lamar. I would like to hear from Mrs. Brunson. My phone number is (205)960-8411.
Lamar was a great guy. His family is lucky to have had him with them for so many years.
