A is for April #AtoZChallenge


Annie Black Gunter

A is for Annie, the inspiration for the name of this blog.  Annie Black Gunter was my great-grandmother, through my daddy's daddy.  My daddy knew her as "Big Mama".  I am named for her and her sister Suzie.

April is a big birthday month for our family.  All of our grandmothers, except for one, were born in April.

In the order of their birth date (month/day), here they are:

Maggie Pressley Spence
Maggie Pressley Spence, my maternal grandma, was born 2 April 1917.

Evelyn Floree Fowler Gunter
Evelyn Floree Fowler Gunter, my paternal granny, was born 14 April 1921.

Ruby Fowler McClendon
Ruby Fowler McClendon, David's paternal grandma, was born 29 April 1910.

These great ladies have all gone on to their Heavenly reward.  We are very blessed, and forever grateful, to have had them in our lives.

    1. Thank you. :) It stands for "postscript", like the stuff you add after the end of a letter. I'm always remembering after I end a letter or hang up the phone that I had something else to say.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed weekend.

  3. A wonderful post. I am an April baby too. April 8th
