    Religion and going to church was a very important part of the lives of people who lived in the country. It was a way for people to celebrate their faith and to have fellowship with others in their communities. It was a time of picnic's on the ground and singing of the old gospel songs. There was always the decoration day each year, usually the first Sunday in May , to take flowers and decorate the graves of all their loved ones. I can so well remember the beautiful paper roses made by my Aunt Effie L. ( Reed  ) McBride and my grandmother Arbelia ( Farmer ) Reed . I was so amazed how beautiful they were and knew many hours were spent making them. On Decoration Day everyone would see people that were from far and near. It's a special memory of my childhood days and I am sure my cousins all felt the same way too.
