Visit to Columbia

While Aunt Margie was visiting us, Mama and I drove to Columbia and revisited the area where Mama and Daddy met in 1945, where they married in 1946 and I was born in 1947. We also visited the Duff family cemetery plots there and drove around the town to see how it had changed. The United Methodist Church there (circa 1878) has been recently repainted to celebrate the centenial of that building being built in 1911.

We also visited the Martin Homeplace near Columbia and enjoyed seeing the old buildings on the farm and many old farm implements used there many years ago. We really did have a lot of fun that day reminiscing "old times.'
