Title: The Last Goodbye - A Visit to a House of Many Memories
Author(s): Getz, Lowell L.
Subject(s): Nostalgia Southern Illinois
Abstract: Within the past year, both my uncle and aunt passed away, leaving me owner of the small unproductive southern Illinois family farm , with its unpretentious seven-room house dating back to the mid-1BOOs. As income from the farm declined and medical bills escalated, my uncle and aunt were unable to keep up with needed improvements, and the house fell into disrepair. It will have to be razed. It is within this house that my family roots lie and in which my early life unfolded.
