Shirley Nero and Marilyn Jackson drove to Tulsa last week to meet their cousin Lamar Ballard of New York City for the first time. Shirley knew he existed but had never met him. They found each other through an ancestry search. Lamar is the grandson of the Ballard girl’s uncle Elzie Ballard who is the brother to their dad Roy. Lamar lived in north Tulsa at an early age, but the area was not a suitable place to raise children. She moved to Hutchinson, Kansas to raise her children. He followed his dream of moving to New York to become a men’s clothing model of which he currently does. He mostly does mannequin modeling. Elzie Ballard moved from Tulsa to Wetumka where he lived until his death. Lamar’s mother moved back to Tulsa where she currently resides, she is the daughter of Elzie. The sisters were excited to meet with Lamar and have plans to meet again in the future.

Yes, there are people who live on this earth who see to it. One such individual was a “faithful” customer of mine way back in the 1970s. He was a chronic complain-er who was forever being shorted on his medicine, by me. The city overcharged him on his water and the butcher over at Allen Food Center always weighed his meat orders heavy. He had a rough life. He had one prescription for 30 pills. Cheap. So cheap that I only charged him a buck a month for his 30 pills. But of course, he said I always cheated him anyway so I just made it a point to give him an extra pill or two. This gift was never acknowledged.
