Gilbert: Aunt Della told stories of my life

Aug 8, 2008 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: DNJ.com

My father grew up among the "hollers" of Celina and Moss. But when dad was 20, his father moved the family to Murfreesboro to take care of a 600-acre farm that was owned by an insurance company.
