She then moved to S. Georgia, married and had two beautiful daughters, who are here today. Then in 1983, met and married me in a barn. In 1984, moved to an old log cabin with no bathroom and no kitchen. Her mother saw it and said "Rita, you left this in Poor Valley, why are you coming back to it?" About 10 years later she found her "childhood dream house". My nightmare. We worked on it for two years to get it ready to live in. One day, while digging a ditch, I sat down on the edge of the ditch to rest and she came around the corner of the house and said "what are you doing-I said dieing-she said no, no, no, you can't, the house isn't finished. We had so many, many laughs, over that.
