My ex-father-in-law (Johnny Miles) is now deceased. In Dec. 1972, I married his son, Roosevelt Miles, and to that union, I bore one child, a son: Roosevelt 'Curly' Miles II, who is now 35 yrs. of age (who will turn 36 August 2009). He & his wife are now divorced (Mr. John Van Bishop was her grandfather and heer mother's name is Brenda Bishop-Gaddy). However, I do have 3 grandchildren (all boys: 10 yrs. old, 8 & 4). Indeed, they are the love(s) of my life. They (at least two of them) attend worship services with me almost weekly.
Yes, I know you & have since the days when you & your family lived down by the cemetary. During those day, your father, Mr. David & Mrs. Sarah & Herbert Washington were all living @ that time. You may remember me as Bernita Withers - not Bernadette Withers-Miles. We all grew up together. Do you remember when Bro. Billy & Sister Rita had tent revivals in Altheimer & Newtown? We would all walk to revivals & Sis. Rita's Family (the Roundtrees') was also around during that time. Several weeks ago, when Mr. Woodrow Knott passed away, Ruth, Brenda, Martin, Cliff, Marva & I attended the services together. Not knowing years ago that Mr. General was my Dad's 2nd cousin, and we never knew until the illness of Woodrow. I wasn't familiar with him personnally, however, his brothers: Charlie & Robert Knott visited my who was their cousin on many, many occasions - but again, I never had the opportunity to meet Woodrow before his illness. Above all else, I never knew they were Mr. General's siblings. My, my, my, what a small world we live in.
I've asked Ruth on numerous occasions about you. She says you are affiliated with a church in Hope, AR. I have acquaintancies in Malvern & I indicated to Ruth that I wanted to surprise you one Sunday and show up @ your church (until she told me that your church is not in Malvern).
I could go on & on & on, but I won't just now. I have your email address - got it from Ruth and on occasion, if you'll check it out, I've sent you an email here & there.
Brenda was in Pine Bluff today. Our class had a luncheon @ a local restaurant. We ate, took pictures, & reminsced for 3 or 4 hrs.
Again, I repeat, get my number from Brenda or Ruth and stay in touch with me.
Malcomb, I, too, attended/graduated from Altheimer High School having attended there throughout my school days. I graduated May 23, 1971, along with your sisters: Ruth & Brenda. I am very much acquainted with most of your family members: General (Martin), Clifton, Bro. Billy, Gertrude, Irma, Margaret; nephews Jesse, Julius, & Larry; neices Terri LaRae, Benita, Freda (Marva's daughters); your mother, Mrs. Ruth & father: Mr. General). I reiterate, I am very familiar with most of your family.
God has Blessed me (and continues to bless me). I am forever indebted to him for his goodness.
Whenever opportunity prevails, please feel free to contact me. It feels my heart with joy to hear from you. It has been about 38 years since we've seen each other. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. You may obtain my cell # from either Ruth or Brenda.
