A Short Story
Once upon a time, in the year of 1940, a family wedding took place in a little white country church in the community of Prairie Hill in Texas. Lula and Lee married and settled down to a life of farming and self employment.
Lee worked as a contractor/carpenter building barns and remodeling jobs along with farming and raising cattle. Lula was a homemaker and took much pride in vegetable gardening and canning. The most important part of their life was their two children, a son and a daughter.
She provided day care for her two grandchildren and as the next generation came, Lula and Lee welcomed the great grand-children. Sunday lunches were a regular event with the whole family showing up almost every week. They just squeezed more chairs around the big dining room table as the family grew.
In their mid life and retirement years, Lula and Lee enjoyed going dancing with many friends in the “Top Cat Dance Club” and also playing cards as much as they could.
Lula, in her later years, developed Alzheimers and Lee stayed by her side through all.
Their life was a blessing to all who knew them and they were such an inspiration to their daughter and grand-daughter who now are the jewelry designers of “Lula ‘n’ Lee” and we dedicate our creative spirit to them.
