Thank you Cousin Diane

I am working on a memory quilt for my Dad and was a little short on photos of his siblings - I could grab a photo of his great grandmother but finding one of his brother Raymond took some help, LOL. Anyway, Cousin Diane came to the rescue. I am sharing a photo of my Dad and his three brothers.

I don't know why but when I see this it reminds me of all those photos of the Kennedy brothers. Perhaps same time frame and a bunch of boys ;)

Anyway, they are (left to right) Melvin Manning, Carl Manning (daddy), Raymond Manning, and Johnny Manning. All born in Lawrence County Arkansas. Melvin was a school teacher and then later an administrator. My Dad worked in parts most of his life (mostly agri but also Buick for a few years) and was once a soda jerk! Uncle Raymond was a farmer, and Uncle John was a business man and mostly notably, to me, one of those businesses was a beauty school in Kankakee, IL. He is the dad of my cousin Diane who supplied this great photo. Thank you Di!
