Hello Nocks: Yesterday, myself, my cousin Tia Mason Howard, and her children spent the afternoon with one of the senior members of our family. His name is Weldon Nock, and he is ninety one years old. We spent a number of hours just talking about his life experiences, from his service in World War II, experiencing segregation and bigotry of that era, and some of the history of our family. It was a wonderful experience. If you have older relatives, take advantage of their knowledge and wisdom. Our children in particular, need that relationship with their elders. They will not be with us forever.
