March 15, 2009 in Mississippi and we are all so happy to be here with family. But there is something that we have to do that is so sad.
This is the site of where the house my mother grew up in used to be. For five generations we have come to this same spot over the years to say hi and spend time with the Savell side of the family.
The state of Mississippi is expanding Highway 19 and they purchased this land from my family because the highway will run through this area.
I was hoping to see it one last time to take a picture of Emma and the house where my Mom grew up, but it was already gone. : (
With progress comes change, needed and good, but it is still sad in a way. Now my Mamaw lives in town in a really nice house and is close to really good friends and family.
