I read about your father in the Cameron County Echo. I am truly sorry for your loss. I was small when you all lived in Emporium. Our family was just down the road. I remember well, my mother giving one of my sisters and I two dollars and sending us to get some sweet corn form Mr Seay. I also remember our shock (every time) we asked for a dozen ears and he would count them out into the bag. Ten, eleven, twelve, twelve, twelve. And keep counting twelve until he couldn't put anymore into the bag. We were a large family, with little money, and those extra ears of corn would mean we could all have more than one piece. That is a very good memory. One I have thought of many times over the years. I was thankful then and now for his kindness. once again I am sorry for your loss and hope you are able to remember all of the good and wonderful ways he influenced others. All my sympathy Danielle Burke-Hopwood Emporium,PA
