I recently received an e-mail from my Dad about his Dad. He died the same year I was born, so I never met him, but have heard so many great stories about him. We have always said that Grandpa and I greeted one another in 1973 as he was going up and I was coming down. Here is what Dad sent me: May 7 is the 100th birthday of Guy Vernon McDill. He was born in 1910 in Newton County Mississippi and died in 1973 and is buried in Beaumont. Attached are a few old pictures.

This photo was taken in 1962 when Dad, Mom and Bob visited Blanchard, Louisiana at the birth of Michael (my oldest brother). Guy was 52 at the time.
