Page 6A -- The Glenviile Democrat/Pathfinder -- Thursday, January 29, 2009 American Red Cross What is the most crucial decision you have made today? How to suc- cessfully complete a school or work project? Maybe the best way to juggle the family budget? Perhaps what to do about a troubled teen or an elderly parent in declining health? All are unquestionably important decisions. What if you had to decide which patients should receive the limited blood supplies in the hospital blood bank? When supplies are critically low, as in the case of Type O negative and B negative blood following the holiday season, this possible life or death question may not be as far- fetched as you might think. Type O negative blood is the uni- versal blood type and can be trans- fused to any patient in an emergency. Yet just seven percent of the popula- tion has Type O negative blood, and they must receive Type O negative blood if they need a transfusion. Every two seconds, someone in our country needs a blood transfusion. And too many among us assume that adequate blood supplies will always be there when we or someone we love needs a transfusion. This can only happen with the community's sup- port. Although eight out of 20 people may be eligible to donate blood, only one m 20 actually donates each year. Of those who donate, most give just once a year. Yet many can donate blood every 56 days.

Happy Memories Recall Pioneer Families I think this picture of my parents and family might have been taken in 1933. Harold was born in February, 1932, and he looks like he might be a little over a year old. I think this house was called the "Cleo Reip Place." It was located on the Perkins Ridge, between Rosedale's Barn Run and Tanner #4. My grandpa Ira Minney, "Papa" to his children and grandchildren, moved to this house after his wife, Myrtle. died at the "Vick Perkins Place" in 1929. The Vick Perkins Place was lo- cated on the same road. but Bob Miller once told me he thought it was in the edge of Calhoun County. My aunt, Cressie, daughter.of Ira. once said she thought Papa liked to move. When I was visiting GaleMiller last fall, his daughter. Yvonne, told me that her grandma. Viola Wolfe. lived in the Cleo Reip house when Yvonne was growing up, and the family didn't have any pictures of the house. I sent Yvonne a copy of this p~cture. She told Gale's baby sister, Luanne, that she had the picture. Last week. I got a letter from Luanne, with some of her memories of this house. Luanne says she has happy memo- ries of visiting at this house. Luanne's brothers. Gale and Bon, married Ruth and Janet Wolfe, respectively, both daughters of Viola. Luanne's family never fixed a spe- cial meal for Thanksgiving, but she has happy memories of Thanksgiving meals she ate at Mr. Wolfe's. Luanne was always included in the Thanks- giving dinner invitation, because two of her brothers had married Mrs. Wolfe's daughters. She especially remembers dessert at Mrs. Wolfe's: there were a variety of desserts, and Mrs. Wolfe prepared a plate for each person, with a small sample of each dessert on it. Luanne also~ remembers picking blackberries on the Wolfe farm. People came with "water buckets" on each arm to pick the berries on the shares, Geraldine M arks 462-7477 and Luanne remembers giving Mrs. Wolfe all her berries. I read in last week's Braxton Demo- crat of the death of Edith Rexroad. who lived at Spencer. ,She was a daughter of Jess and Lona Rexroad and was born at Progress. of Crooked Fork, in Braxton County Herobitu- ary said she was an accomplished quilt-maker, and that her quilts were sold all over the U.S. and Canada. I attended school with the Rexroad family atthe Rider School in Braxton County in the 1930s. and we called Edith "Oleta" then. The Rexroads owned our local family store and the Progress Post Office, at that time. I have many good memories of that store. We have been having some real winter weather, and I have heard this winter compared to the terrible cold winter of 1977. School has been cancelled and on a two-hour delay several times. Roads have been ter- ribly slick. Daughter Marina and family got groceries for me, cleaned offmy walk, and brought my mail in. Daughter Regina flew to Orlando, FL, on Inauguration Day. She spent a while in the DC airport waiting on her plane in the afternoon and flew a little after five. She said the airport was crowded. I thought it was inter- esting that she was that close to the action. This was Regina's first airplane flight, and she was flying alone. Find- ing your gate in a big airport is scary even when you are with a seasoned flyer, and I was a little anxious until she landed in Florida and called. Regina is attending a Computer Conference at the Convention Cen- ter in Orlando, and they keep her awfully busy. She says the confer- ence is very interesting and she is learning a lot. Regina figured she was going to a warm place, but this week Florida is having freezing weather, for the first time in a while. I recently discovered that James Edward Miller, who lived on Millfork and recently died at 95 years of age, was a half-brother to my great-aunt Vernetta Minney's husband, George Washington Miller. After Aunt Vernetta died, George brought their daughter. Dell. to live with us. He often spent nights with us when he visited Dell. Dell washed the dishes, and I dried them. I was ten years old when she went to Harley Reeder's to stay. and I was then chief dishwasher and dryer. I always wondered why Edward's daughter, Darlene, looked so much like Dell. Now I know they were half-first cousins. Retirement Part): Date: Monday, February 2, Time: 3 pm to 6 pm Place: G.C.
