|What do I miss the most?|
What I miss the most about life are the people who have already gone on to be with the Lord. Especially those like my Momma, Daddy, my brother Devone, my grandparents, my kinfolks and friends like Randy McLemore.
Many times when I was sitting on my deer stand I would spend a lot of time talking to them. My mind would wander as I thought about the many things that I missed the most about each of them. Daddy's ability as an athlete paved the way for him to go to college. Because of his tremendous athletic ability, he starred in football, basketball, and track. I never heard Daddy talk about playing baseball, so I don't know if he ever played.
But it was football that prepared him for his vocation as a football coach. He loved sports and he loved to coach. He loved kids and that is what made him such a great coach. To listen to him talk about his players was quite an interesting side bar. Some of the stories were hilarious and some of them were on the more serious side. But I never forgot any of these accounts. After Daddy died in 1958, Momma became the source of the tales that we had never heard before. So many of the stories centered on the mighty Tallulah Trojans. Two subjects that took up most of the story lines were farming and football.
