Dan age 17 back on the farm
sitting on ''The General'' tractor.
Folks, I was in 7th Heaven when
working this tractor. I did a lot of
singing with that ole engine
purring.....it had to sound good!!.
Mel Steele, could tune a guitar faster
than anyone I have ever heard. He
was a real base player. Was with
Renfro Valley for years till the Lord
sent him to us. He had a great
testimony and sang a beautiful tenor.

Marsha Halbirt & Hilda McDaniel.
Marsha was a beautiful singer, piano
player & the sweetest organ player. I
was never blessed by anyone playing
the organ as I was Marsha. She lost
her battle with Cancer. Hilda was a
beautiful tenor singer and was always
ready to sing, you could always count
on her. She lost the battle with heart
Carol & Sid and I think, Rita.

These were The Evereadys that traveled with
us on the bus. They were always a crowd
pleaser and from their name Eveready, they
were always eager to hit the stage. Now they
are all grown and have families of their own.
We started in December 1957
and we are still at it.
Some of the pictures you see
have already made it home to
But we thank God for their lives
and all the good testimonies &
memories they left us.
