Brother Embry was a walking, talkig miracle. He reminded me of President Jimmy Carter in so many ways. We were very fortunate to have a college educated southern aristocrat as our Business Manager, the working man's best friend.
He had been on my mind strongly for 2 weeks [not knowing He was ill] as I thought of organizing a 'Pioneer's of Macon' festival. I wanted to have Brother Embry and His wife flown to Macon so that he could tell some of the history there. I knew that time was fleeting for many of our elder historians.
I urge everyone to go on line and read of the many books, short stories and poems wriiten by Bro. Emry's grandfather [Harry Stillwell Edwards] at His writer's cabin on Browns Mound in Macon. He was perhaps the greatest and most prolific southern writer ever.
He owned several newspapers even tho His education was cut short by the War of Northern Aggression.
Broter Embry exemplied the greatness, humility, intelligence, kindness and perseverance of His ancestors. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
