"Terrence Austin Puckett, 62, of Las Cruces, died in his sleep Saturday, March 1, 2003 at the Las Cruces Gospel Rescue Mission.

The Reverend Lester Heinzman will hold a memorial service for Terry at the Mission Chapel, 1050 West Amador, on Wednesday, March 5, 2003 at 7:00 p.m.

Terry served our community as Mission Manager from 1995 until he suffered his fourth stroke last November. He was slowly regaining his speech and physical skills through weekly therapy, but chronic congestive heart failure seems to have brought his life on earth to an end. Those who worked with him at the mission will sorely miss him. There are countless homeless whose lives were also blessed by knowing him.

Five children now living in Aurora, Colorado, and a brother who resides in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, survive him.

Final arrangements by Baca's Funeral Chapel are pending."

Terry's brother in Oklahoma writes, "My brother, Terrence (Terry) Austin Puckett's Obituary in the March 5th, 2003, edition of the Las Cruces Sun - News. Terry was the great-grandson of Richard and Mary (Polly) Ann Brooks Puckett, and grandson of Travis and Nancy Catherine Mayo Puckett, son of Richard Gerald and Mary Lillian May (Boteler) Puckett and my beloved brother!"

A Gailey Cousin Christmas Tree Tradition

Most of my family reunions and get-togethers have been centered around holidays or special events. It's hard to pick out a special personality (we have several - as I'm sure most of you do) and I've thought about all of the pets we've had in the past, the special heirlooms that grandma loved to display during the holidays and I'm really having a hard time coming up with a single one.

My aunt Irene and uncle Raymond always had the big get-togethers at their house, because it was the largest, had acres of pecans trees to play under and they had the most grandchildren! Of course, all of that was later, after all six of us cousins had grown up and had children of our own.

Thinking of Christmas, my mind keeps going back to the time before I moved into Grandma and Doc's home and we celebrated at our house. I remember getting a beautiful bride doll one Christmas. Wish I still had that doll. Have no idea where she traveled to after she got married. And then there was o…

BOBBY


Bushy brows draw together as the old man draws paint Over the wood – he tried to make his shaking hand glide smoothly. Both the paint and the brush left a squiggly line, By the look of his face You knew he was not pleased with his efforts.
