In any man who dies there dies with him.
Things I learned from my Popaw - Its OK to Stop and try again - I also learn that one should invest in property (maybe not so good now) - To be kind to older people and that to be a good listener is a gift. R. F. Copley of Chattaroy, W. Va. died on April 1st. He was 94 years old, an incredible man, strong willed, and a physically strong man, he retired at age 65 but he continued to work, his life was devoted to 'finding the next deal'. My popaw was a remarkable man, he could tell the very best stories - and I knew for certain there was only a thread of truth in each story -but oh - how lovely and entertaining the stories were when I was a child.Popaw spent a very short time in the United State Marines - this short time seem to grow as he aged - and after age 80 his time in the Marines - seem to become the most important of his memories. He dearly loved the United States Marines, he collected in the last fourteen years of his life hundreds of USMC items of memorabilia. Even more than the US Marines, he loved Chattaroy Hallow, his family and his church.
