How They Met
One day, my grandmother was on the way to school. As she walked
along, she came across four boys playing in the snow. They had
no shoes on and no coats. She stopped and asked them where their
parents were. They told her their mom had left them and their
father was at work. She thought it wasn't right to leave the
boys so she skipped school and took them in the house. They had
not had breakfast so she got them properly dressed, including
shoes, and fed them.
Soon she heard a voice shout, "Who the H___ are you!?"
It was Vinson Moore returning home from work. When my grandmother
told me this, she left out a lot of the story. She later married
him and took good care of his boys. She had four children with
Vinson including my mother, and they stayed together until his
death in 1979. They were married 57 years.

Vinson Moore's parents were Uriah Moore and Martha Estella

back to Little Rock, Arkansas, for burial. I have no further
