    "Favorite Memories"
    by Charlie's & Iva's niece,
    Etheda Jo (Sasser) Wallis

    Charlie & Iva
    Charlie Sasser
    was a dedicated family man.

    He worked for the City of Tulsa as grounds
    keeper for 30 or so years. He was an active
    member of the Free Will Baptist Church for many
    years. I remember him as being one of the best
    men tht I ever knew, and with a delight in
    children. His sense of humor delighted us and
    he always seemed to have time to joke or kid
    one of us. We all loved him and wanted to go
    to his house to "play." He always made each
    of us feel special. Even as adults. He proved it
    by stopping traffic in two different directions
    one day in downtown Pryor, to roll down the
    window on his pickup and to sing me the first
    verse of the "Old Gray Mare," at the top of
    his voice. Then he calmly drove away.
    Left me in stitches.
    Iva Sasser
    was one of the best cooks around.

    They had a long table with a bench on the back,
    and my delight was to sit there with the
    family and to eat her cooking.

    We never came to visit that she
    and Uncle Charlie didn't ask us to stay
    (at least to eat), and to stay the night
    if possible.

    Her garden was her delight
    - vegetables and flowers.

    I especially remember her Hollyhocks.
