Surname that I am researching are Spearing/Spearin, Pratt, Gibson. Julia Haines B Abt 1855, Gideon Spearing B 1847 Benton Maine. Harriet Spearing B1882 Benton Maine.Frank David Spearing Ina mae Gerald of Clinton Maine.It is my earnest desire to write out and preserve my family History.Notes: On October 29, 1996 John G Reed closed his eye's forever on mortality. His passing was unexpected and sudden yet there was time for those who loved him most to gather at his bed side. I don't belive that he knew we were there. It was peaceful and painless, death came to him as sleep to a tired child. To his beloved memory these page's are affectionately dedicated. Transcribed By Jackie Johnson Guidance Pocomoke Elem School. MY GRANDFATHER JOHN G REEDOn tuesday, October 29 1996 at 11:45am., my grandfather John G Reed died. When I heard of it My heart exploded. I could not accept it. I tried not to cry but I did everyone cried. My mom, Mary, cried my aunt cried, and my grandmom cried. I know I should have been thinking of all the good thing I remember about him, but it was to hard to do just then. It was even harder to say goodbye at the funeral. I am going to try alway to remember the good and nice things about Pop Pop John. And when I grow up, I am going to tell the young children in my family all about him. These are some of the thing I remember about Pop Pop. I enjoyed with him in his old truck. Even though it was old an the seat's were torn in spots, it was a good truck. I did not get to ride with him in his new, blue truck because he got sick soon after he got it. I still remember that Pop Pop came over every day for coffee with us. He never used cream I know because when he didn't drink it all of it, I finished the cup. Grandpop would sit on the couch for about a hour. Then he would leave. He was a very nice person who never fussed with us kids. He was a quiet man who let us comb his white hair. He treated me pretty special. He called me Choco because I only drank chocolate milk as a baby. Pop Pop treated us all well. Everytime we needed help. he would be there for us. Like if the hot water heater broke he would be there to help. He fixed our washing machine when it was leaking. He also helped dad fix the refrigerator. He like fixing things. As I think of it, we were all his favorites. He loved us a lot. Everytime we went to his house, he gave us hugs and stuff. At his home in Sunshine Village Apartments, we did not have to ask for candy, we could just get it. I can still imagine how he looked when he was well. He was a tall gray-haired man who wore brown work boots and blue cover-alls. He didn't have a belly like most men his age. He was slender with a thin white mustache and he uaually had spikey gray hair on his chin because he needed a shave. Although he was mom step-dad, she visited him every day when he was at the hospital. I feel a little better now because mom and aunt Diana said he died peacefully. I think that means he was happy. Although I miss having him with us, I will never forget what a great person my Grandfather was. And I will tell my children(if I have any) all about him.By Carlos Acevedo III Grade 3 .
