Mom passed today

After 86 years and having survived the great depression, the loss of my dad , the difficulties of raising me as a single and older parent, my mother passed this life.

She had a stroke and for a week battled to survive until Dec. 2nd, my dad's birthday.

Since I am an only child, she is survived by myself, and my 2 adult daughters, Cassi Teague and Christina Overman.

Additionally she is survived by brothers Walter Franklin and EJ Franklin, and sisters Doris Franklin and Edith Winland.

She was preceded in death by her parents Ethan Allen and Icie May Franklin as well as her husband and my father, A.D. (Don) Overman, her oldest sister, Neva Walls, youngest brother, Herman Franklin, and twin sisters Lilly Lambert and Lillian Glascoe.

Services were at Tullahoma Funeral Home and graveside at Maplewood Cemetery.
Mobile: Gary Overman

Thanks to friends and family...

Thanks to friends and family...

My mom died at 86 on December 2nd ( what would have been my deceased Dad's 88th birthday).

She has suffered a most severe stroke and while it may sound cliche, after watching her pretty much non-stop for over a week, saying the final goodbyes was made easy as it was seen as a blessing of mercy for the whole family.

The pain was also easied by the "ocean" of family, friends, co-workers, Lions Club members, our website customers, and friends from the virtual world of the art forums, who said kind words, prayed, called, visited, sent flowers, sent cards, brought food,and hugged us all.

Sadness shows up at seemily odd times (to me).... but after her last 6 years in a nursing home, there is also relief in her passing.

I can only hope/pray that I inherited some of her "toughness genes".

Again, Thanks and love to all,
Gary O

You download this software free!

Please don't ask me questions... while I use version 6 of Truespace, I just got the free 7.x version and want to tell the forum about it... I just don't have time to repsond to any tech questions as I am not the expert on this subject. After using Calagari Truespace since version 1.0 ..... and after a decade of it being sold for as much as $500 ..... You can now download the latest version free just for "registering" on-line. This is not a timelimited or downgraded version, full-up power. Be warned that it does have a learning curve because it is 4d ( realtime 3d + time) . They are also giving away complete on-line manuals and VIDEO training. As I understand it, Microsoft bought Calagari and wants to make it the new standard for 3d mapping and virtual reality and are doing so by giving it away. I downloaded, installed it and ran a few tests in about an hour. Don't pass up this freebie! Here's where you can download directly off Calagari's website:
