My father, the most patient man and the best teacher I ever knew, passed on November 10, 1953. Mother, the most economical and best cook I ever knew, died April 23, 1962. Both passed on at Sister Avis’ in Cleveland, Tennessee. Dad went so quietly at the breakfast table that Mother, Avis, and Archie thought he was reaching for his kerchief to wipe food from his mouth. Mother also went easily with a short heart attack.
