Hazzard Hill Cemetery, Waycross, Georgia

A visit to Hazzard Hill

I had a great visit to the Hazzard Hill Cemetery in Waycross, Georgia, on the day before “Independence Day.” I went to find the grave of Della Doe – someone who is a stranger with no close known connection – more on this after I complete my research and documentation.

Time, Family, Research, Understanding

Even though the COVID-19 Pandemic has eliminated some activities, such as waiting for the school bus and commuting to work, it is still necessary to make time for important leisure activities.

Year one complete!

All the papers are turned in, my Old Testament exam is in the stack for grading, and I am still not sure what all this seminary “thing” means. More contemplation soon. First, some thanks.
