First Sunday

The first Sunday of every May, Billy's paternal grandmother's extended family meet for a reunion and cemetery decoration. We have lunch at Bruce's in Guntersville, go out to the family cemetery which is between Guntersville and Scottsboro, and then have dessert at an old log cabin at the old "home place." This year the event was on May 2. There were local folks, plus family from as far as Oklahoma and Louisiana. We then went to Scottsboro to place flowers on the Woodall family graves. We even went to Woodville to another cemetery to see even more Woodalls. Billy and his dad stopped at Billy's great-great aunt's old house, and the current owners invited them inside. It has been beautifully restored. We have several pieces of furniture and glassware from Aunt Fannie.
