If you'll read the post from the kind person, Vkn, and the articles forwarded to me, you'll see our Dr. Jackson. It was George F. and Anna, though I don't quite understand, I thought it showed the house originally being owned by Herman and Gerthe, though you're always guessing. I thought it was George P. when of course, the P was an F, because it was Dr. George and Anna. So I think the Gerthe guess was a Gertrude and if he was George, Jr, why did he name his son George, Jr.? I can check with the cemetary and look up all sorts of other things. But he was heroic, the way I imagined him, fighting battles and winning some of them, all his life. I'm so excited, can you tell?
Off to read with another small hero, DayQuan, who has moved around so much that he did not know how to read when he came to my son's school. (in his class) He's in 3rd grade and we don't know how much longer we have him, and such a bright, sweet, boy, such a gentleman. (My husband said, you want to adopt him? In a heartbeat, though he is not up for grabs.) His mama looks 15, lives with mama and grandma and little brother, 3, with asthma.He's very tender of his little brother and of my baby. He's already up to slow first grade reading now, obviously very bright, so I must do what small part I can for him. We love to read together. Maybe I'll bring him Dr. Jackson's obituary to read today! The school, a Montessori, is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, the teacher amazing. Thank God. I want this little boy to fly, fly, fly as he is so obviously meant to, and learning to read easily and for fun is a huge part of that!
