In the photo above – – this picture of the three of us – – is being taken by Gail Porter. Also… in the above photo is Betty Jean Musgrove, and she is taking a picture of me, Mary Ellen and I have my left arm around Beverly Porter – who is a very good friend
This photo was taken in my last year at German St. Vincent’s Orphanage – as you see I have long hair – – and I wanted it to be long for “Graduation Day” in the coming up June…. but the NUNS – – had a thing about long hair – that is long hair on me. They told me that they would pay for me to get a permanent at the “Ragsdale Beauty Shop” if I would have it done – as soon as possible???
It was January 1952 – and they promised me that my hair grows fast – – and it would be long again for “GRADUATION” – – I did not really believe them – but – and so that I would not be harassed any more – about my long hair – disturbing them – when we were in Church – let me tell you … it does take longer than six (6) months to grow long hair.
This was to be a message to remember Beverly Theresa Porter Hitchcock – as she was a very good and dear …friendly- person …to everyone… for all of her LIFE – and last year today … she left here… for a much greater – a far, far greater rest…with her CREATOR…ending this journey here…
Well… I was able to add this much latter photo of Beverly Theresa Hitchcock … and she lived 74 very good years … with all of us – – – her very many friends and Family!
