Restless Circumstances Cont….

“In due time the traditional “Stork” brought to them a baby girl. They named her Sarah L., after my mother. In quick succession the busy bird came again, bringing this time a little Carrie, named for her mother. In the interim, however, cruel Tuberculosis with violent hemorrhages had taken the babes father to the land beyond and eight months later their mother succumbed to the same malady, having contracted it during their few years of married life. At that same time, sister and her babes were living with us. My father passed on shortly after. A few years later my mother’s busy, loving hands were closed and I was left all alone with the two little ones.”
