September 2013
From John W. Clark
To Floyd K Clark & Ruby Clark Petteway

It seems that the three of us are the oldesf"surviving grandchildren of Wallace M Clark.
The only possible exception would be Ira's daughter, Irene, if is still alive at age 95.
Except for her, we have no more than six living Clark cousins: four for Alta; Gene, one; Boss, one (Merle).
Merle is the only one that I am sure is still alive. She was 80 on 11 July (Mama's birthday).
Cousin Floyd also had a son born on 11 July. Shirley Jean's birthday was Sep 24 (Ruby's birthday)
and Andrew had a daughter born on 28 Sep (Karlton's birthday).

We are also three of the four oldest surviving grandchildren of John Langham.
Otha is the other one. Fourteen of the original 28 Langham cousins are alive.
Joyce Ragan & Eldon Stamdridge each turned 80 this year.
Mary Jones said that Eldon had parachuted out of a plane when he was 75 and did it again this year.
Then he told the pilot he would be back in 5 more years.

In case you don't know about all the family deaths this year, here's what I know:
Cousin BonnJe died on 17 Jan 2013. Aunt Bonnie had also died on 17 Jan. Bonnie was 82.
McKinley died on 25 Feb 2013 (Age 92)
Roy Williams (Leona's son) died on 2 March 2013 (Age 70)
Shirley (Boss' daughter) died on 6 April 2013 (Age 76). Lived in FtWorth. Buried, McAlester, OK.

Hope all is well with each of you. We are OK. I had a blackout on 26 Aug.
Spent a night in hospital. They decided it was just that I got too hot.

Jo & Bill are getting ready to start rehearsing for "The Grapes of Wrath".
They will be performing 22 Oct thru 3 Nov.

Best wishes & Happy Birthday.

Bro John
