Your Grandmother was from Bryan Texas and ( as I have just
learned myself in March of 2018 ) your Grandfather was from Atlanta, Georgia
with close family ties in Alabama and Tennessee. I am now
discovering my own family I never knew.
This was your great-great-grandfather's brother and son:
Thomas Augusta Free ( born February 2, 1891) and
William Thomas Free ( born January 9, 1923)
Both died together December 7th, 1941 on the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor.
2016 was the 75th
anniversary of Pearl Harbor
..."It is so very sad that you were made to
miss out on
all the love we had to give.
No reason ever given, a closed door refused to be opened,
no stories or pictures ever shared, just a stern refusal of
letting our Love for you be part of your life"....
I always loved you both, and I always will!
