Dr. Chandler delivered Melida in Caraway, Arkansas but really a midwife, sister Mary, beat the doctor! She was raised by her grandmother Wilson. Melida has one brother and eight sisters, she always said she was an only child! She was a beautiful woman but she hated having her picture taken, but always wanted to see others. She played a wicked game of Wa-Hoo, just ask any of her grandchildren! Gam was an avid fan of the Texas Rangers, if they would only listen to her! Gam's favorite Texas Ranger was Shin-Soo Choo, who she called Choo-Choo, her second favorite team was the St. Louis Cardinals. She loved to watch game shows on TV.
