The children didn't leave home until their late 30s?
What they meant was when the youngest children began to leave. The oldest had already left.
Touching...absolutely.I’ll bet they were both decent,admirable people who worked hard,obeyed the rules and made it a central part of their lives to be good to their kids...and each other.
Son Dick Felumlee said his parents died of old age, surrounded by family.
"At Dad's bed we were singing his favorite hymns, reading scriptures and praying with him," he told The Associated Press in an email. "It was a going away party, and we know he loved it."
The two became one flesh.
An honest to goodness American Classic Family Story.
These were the people and families that made America great.
We will be hard pressed to find among the current generations anything representing the Strength, Devotion, Love and Faithfulness found in this couple and their family.

They are indeed few and far between but there's one family that restores hope in the traditional Bible-based values central to America. That, of course, is the husband and wife team of Mr. Todd Palin and Governor Sarah Palin as well as their wonderful children!
Exactly...exactly...EXACTLY! Not filth like Osama Obama's whore mother,not his Communist punk father,not his (white) Communist grandfather and most assuredly not that filthy white Communist anarchist filthbag....mentor of one Osama Hussein Obama himself...Saul Alinsky.
Exactly the kind of people that Rats hate.
And they are hated with rabid contempt by today's Left, who hope they'll quickly die off so that the whole leftist agenda can be implemented unhindered.
Don't tell me that we don't have a genocidal war on our hands.
