Subject: Re: Happy 100th Birthday to "Aunt" Betty Olson Johnson
So sorry to see the mill pictures. Seeing important parts of our Hoyt History go down is really hard -- and especially for you who grew up so close by - my sympathy going out to you and your families.
I think I'm back in this time zone - but it takes awhile. We ret'd. from AZ Tues 3 am. The wedding was wonderful, as was weather. It took place at a lovely resort in Paradise Valley - outdoors for the ceremony and indoors for the festivities. Blaire was a lovely bride and looked radiant. Jenifer came down from CA so we had another "reunion" this year - lucky us! Her real birthday is Wed - 3-18. Today was picked to accomodate out of towners. Her daughter, Pat, is here from W. VA. Only cousins Harold and wife Kathy, and cousin, Tim are coming from TC area. All the rest are reluctant to plan long drives at this time of yr. They could have a good, dry trip one way, then
run into all kinds of problems on return - or vice versa. Even cousins from Troy, Royal Oak, and Owasso are doubtful - illness, out of town. Hope to bring them together at a small place nr Betty's on Wed for lunch.
This is a sr. residence comprised of small apartments, she has been there a number of years, but very well kept up, and within walking distance of dntn Plymouth. She is happy there and keeps her place up so well.
She is my teacher for Sr. Citizens #101 - How to be a Nice Old
She is a much loved lady.So dear Aunt Betty has had quite a day, and
how wonderful it was to share it with her. At her Sat. party, I told her,
"Aunt Betty I have never known anyone who was 100 yrs. old."
She replied, " I haven't either." So ends her first 100 years.

HOYT QUOTE OF THE YEAR!
From: Joan (Lukacs) Hoyt's, 5 yr old grandon, Tyler N. Hoyt
Tyler: "Grandma I wish you weren't so old."
Tyler: "Because I don't want you to die. Because if you die I'll REALLY miss you."
Grandma: "Well I'm not crazy about the idea myself. But don't worry Tyler,
by the time I die you'll have a wife and children of your own
and you'll be able to tell them about me."
Tyler: "Okay" (and off he went to play; he came back a couple seconds later and said:)
Tyler: "Hey, I was just thinking ... when I die, we'll be together again!"

Her hair was up in a pony tail,
But her mommy tried to tell her,
But she was not afraid;
But still her mother worried,
But the little girl went to school
There were daddies along the wall in back,
One by one the teacher called
At last the teacher called her name,
"Where's her daddy at?"
And from somewhere near the back,
The words did not offend her,
"My Daddy couldn't be here,
And though you cannot meet him,
We used to share fudge sundaes,
"'Cause my daddy's always with me,
And from somewhere here in the crowd of dads,
For she stood up for the love
And when she dropped her hand back down,
"I love my daddy very much,
You see he is a Marine
And to her mothers amazement,
Who knows what they saw before them,
"I know you're with me Daddy,"
Not one in that room could explain it,
And a child was blessed, if only for a moment,
The Story Tellers
We are the chosen. My feelings are that in each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know, and approve. To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe; all tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: "Tell our story!" So, we do.
In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors, "You have a wonderful family, you would be proud of us?" How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say.
It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who I am and why I do the things I do? It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds, and indifference, and saying I can't let this happen. The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep pride that they fought to make and keep us a Nation. It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us. That we might be born who we are. That we might remember them. So we do. With love and caring and scribing each fact of their existence, because we are them and they are us.
So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers. That, is why I do my family genealogy, and that is what calls those young and old to step up and put flesh on the bones.
Good friends are like stars. You don't always see them
but you always know they are there. from Maxine Lil Heselton St Burnaby
I don't think some of our kids know what an apron is.
GOD BLESS! And have a good day
Sent to me by Bernie M. Hoyt, from CA
Grandma, some ninety plus years, sat feebly on the patio bench. She didn't move, just sat with her head down staring at her hands. When I sat down beside her she didn't acknowledge my presence and the longer I sat I wondered if she was OK.
Finally, not really wanting to disturb her but wanting to check on her at the same time, I asked her if she was OK. She raised her head and looked at me and smiled. "Yes, I'm fine, thank you for asking," she said in a clear strong voice.
"I didn't mean to disturb you, grandma, but you were just sitting here staring at your hands and I wanted to make sure you were OK," I explained to her.
"Have you ever looked at your hands," she asked. "I mean really looked at your hands?"
I slowly opened my hands and stared down at them. I turned them over, palms up and then palms down. No, I guess I had never really looked at my hands as I tried to figure out the point she was making.
Grandma smiled and related this story:
"They braced and caught my fall when as a toddler I crashed upon the floor. They put food in my mouth and clothes on my back. As a child my mother taught me to fold them in prayer. They tied my shoes and pulled on my boots. They held my husband and wiped my tears when he went off to war."
"They have been dirty, scraped and raw, swollen and bent. They were uneasy and clumsy when I tried to hold my newborn son. Decorated with my wedding band they showed the world that I was married and loved someone special. They wrote my letters to him and trembled and shook when I buried my parents and spouse."
"They have held my children and grandchildren, consoled neighbors, and shook in fists of anger when I didn't understand."
"They have covered my face, combed my hair, and washed and cleansed the rest of my body. They have been sticky and wet, bent and broken, dried and raw. And to this day when not much of anything else of me works real well these hands hold me up, lay me down, and again continue to fold in prayer."
"These hands are the mark of where I've been and the ruggedness
of life. But more importantly it will be these hands that God will reach
out and take when he leads me home. And with my hands He will lift me
to His side and there I will use these hands to touch the face of Christ."
