A message from... Earl Hamner
 
 
The house where we lived fell into disrepair for a while,
but happily it was bought by someone I respect and admire and am most grateful to,
a fellow Virginian,
 
She has restored the house from top to bottom.
 
I was afraid that when I visited there after the restoration I might be
 disappointed but Pam has paid such incredible attention to detail that when I was there
 a couple of weeks ago I walked through the door and I was home again.

In memory I go there each night, I stand beside the gate, look up to the house,
and once again I here the voices of my mother and father, my brothers and sisters
as we call goodnight to each other before we sleep.
 
The End...Earl Hamner
