My Mom and Larry decided to tear down the old chicken house at their place. They live on the old farm that once belonged to my Great Grandparents. As they were pulling back the old floor boards, something caught my mom’s eye. Once she looked closer, she was delighted to see that there were names etched into the old concrete! The first one she saw happened to be her own name, Nita. Mom tore out more boards revealing three of her sisters’ names- Linda, Marlis and Marilyn! She was hoping to find my Aunt Kathryn’s name, but she may not have been born yet. They were all quite little girls when their names were written in that old cement! It’s so obvious that these little girls were delighted in by their Grandpa and Grandma.

When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.â€
I want to feel passion, I want to feel pain. I want to weep at the sound of your name. Come make me laugh, come make me cry… just make me feel alive.â€ Joey Lauren
If you want to win friends, make it a point to remember them. If you remember my name, you pay me a subtle compliment; you indicate that I have made an impression on you. Remember my name and you add to my feeling of importance.â€ Dale Carnegie
Integrity: A name is the blueprint of the thing we call character. You ask, What’s in a name? I answer, Just about everything you do.â€ Morris Mandel
