Thank you for posting these pictures. If you have any more of Grandmother and Papa Springer, can you please email them to me at TinaWasileski@aol.com. Thanks! I loved what your wrote about him. The only times I remember visiting them, I loved feeling their "squishy" hugs and Papa's stories. Also, I am interested in finding some of Grandmother's writings in the Democrat...they were titled "Tales of a farmwoman" or something like that. If you know how I could get a copy of some, please let me know!

Lee must have been a closet drinker. He came to Amarillo and stayed for weeks with my mom and dad in 1952/1953...He helped my dad build a room onto our house. Never saw him drinking or smelled liquor on him....This really surprised me.


He may have been sober during those years. I was just a baby! :) I remember him drinking from about 1958 or 1959, until his death. In his later years he never went a single day without drinking.
