Meet the family for November 12, 2011

COTTON/WOODEN-FAMILY LINE

MOUSSEAU/SMITH/CLEVELAND/COTTON/WOODEN/BRIDGFORTH-DAY
Diane Carol Mousseau
is 69 years old today, born in 1942.  Diane is the wife of the boys' 4th cousin 3 times removed who is still living and I don't know his name.

WOODEN/BRIDGFORTH-DAY
Walter William Wooden, Jr.
died 23 years ago today of a heart attack in 1988 at the age of 64 in Dallas, Texas while cutting a tree in his back yard.  Uncle Bud as I knew him was one of the rare people that you could know in your life, a family legend.  If you met him you would always remember him.  He was called suave, handsome, clever even brilliant by many.  While others might say, crude, cunning, devious, scoundrel or even worst.  But to me he was a hero, an uncle that would tell great stories, whether true or not and teach things that couldn't be learned in books.  He taught me how to fold a water bomb from a single sheet of paper and how to lift weights when I was 12.   If Bud had been born just 75 years earlier he might have been a gun slinger, or a riverboat gambler. I miss him to this day and always will.  I just hope someone can say the same about me when I'm gone.  Bud is Debbie Wooden-Bridgforth's father, Andrew and Bryan's grandfather and Steve's granduncle.  The stories we could tell and probably will some day.
