I remember driving to Georgia with my parents and grandparents (Bob and Elizabeth Amos) and visiting Nell and James at the farm. What a great time! I loved running around, getting eggs from the chickens,feeding the cows and playing with their dog, Chico. I will miss my visits with them and will always cherish my memories of her.

I am the grandaughter of Bob and Elizabeth Amos. I have wonderful memories of spending 2 weeks in the summer at Aunt Nell and Uncle James's farm, while growing up. Last time I was able to make the trip down to see them was when my oldest was 2, and he also enjoyed the fun times I had while growing up. We all miss them dearly.
