Aunt Clemmie was very dear to us Cruse kids almost like the grandmother we did not have. I always felt sorry that she did not have a family of her own, as I believed she would have liked to have. She loved all her nephews and nieces, but I guess we were closer to her because we lived in the house together.
Aunt Clemmie was Baby setting my son Don while the rest of the family went to Munfordville to shop & that day she had a stroke and never recovered. Don was only 4years old or younger but he got her to the bed and was setting there by her when we got home.
She was a very quiet natured person soft-spoken lady. She was the first close family member to die in my family and it was difficult for me.
I guess Uncle Arthur spoke when necessary.
I didn’t know uncle Barnett very well.
I guess I got to know your dad better after your mother died. He would visit mother and celebrated the September / Oct. birthdays with us all at times.
Hope your memories are good today, Vivian
