you are too young to remember the family pictures then you owe it to
yourself to browse them. The family has grown so much that it is
difficult to keep up with everyone. Let's not lose touch with our

nephews, nieces... in attendance.

blessed us all by recording many stories of his growing up. Read a great
article which recalls the richness of a younger day.
Saturday May 26th at Brad and Laura (Glover)
Thatcher's Horse Farm.
We had a great
turnout. The reunion was catered by Newnan's Sprayberry's BBQ and
entertainment was provided by Nashville's Country Duo - The Wrights
(Adam and Shannon) Adam Wright is a Newnan native (and
nephew to Banks and Carol Glover as well as nephew to country
superstar Alan Jackson) and his wife Shannon
hails from LaGrange. We were treated to several songs from our own
Carl Boone and later the entire Boone family.
(Boone) Alford did a phenominal job of planning this event. She also
provided the latest family geneological updates. Great job Caroline!
- Uncle Howard Glover is 98 and will turn 99 in December. Uncle Cliff
Glover just turned 94 in May and Aunt Winnie (Glover - Boone) Klein
and Cousin Ann (Glover) Parrot will turn 90 in November. The amazing
thing is that all of these came to the party. Uncle Cliff was his
usual form on the dancefloor.

was held at Homewoods. For those younger folks, this was the original
palacial estate of Uncle Ed and Aunt Virginia Glover Cook (later
Graham after Uncle Ed died). The estate was subsequetly isolated by
the building of West Point Lake and was taken over by the Corps of
Engineers. Fortunately it was recently purchased by a private party
who has worked hard with the family to return the home to it's
original state. This place holds some very dear memories for those of
us in our 50's and 60's.

We are excited
to announce that our 4th baby is on his/her way due January 3,
2004! The first trimester, which is about over, was the
toughest yet for Hannah, but she is doing better now. We covet
your prayers on the safety of development and delivery for both
Hannah and the baby.

May 24, 2003 - Family Reunion
If you didn't
make it, you missed a wonderful time. I don't have the exact count,
but I would estimate at least 150 family members showed up at Laura
and Brad's picturesque horse farm, complete with horses and a
bluegrass band. Caroline Boone Alford did a wonderful job on updating
the family tree, getting the tee shirts and handling the preparation
and logistics. Laura Glover Thatcher and husband Brad were the
consummate hostess and host. The food was delicious and plentiful.
Even more importantly to a clan such as ours, the libations were
cornicopious. We honored the three remaining siblings.
HOMEWOODS restoration: Jack McGraw, formerly of Newnan, has purchased
Aunt Jenny's old homestead from the US Corps of Engineers and is in
the process of restoring it to it's original splendor. He has
recently restored the beautiful ceilings and the plaster molding
throughout. Edmund has volunteered the original blueprints, and Susan
has begun talking with them about her recollections of the colors,
location of furniture, mirrors, etc. If anyone would like to tour the
place or to assist in this restoration by providing memories, please
let me know and I will have Jack contact you.
