I am so glad that
you decided to join us today. Hopefully you will
find a lot of things here that are interesting to you.
Right now, since I am just starting this, we are
definitely under construction. Give me a little time,
and there will be plenty to see and enjoy.
Let me tell
you a little about myself and my family. My name is
Dale, and I am the proud mother of 5 children,
Daniel. I also have 2
step-children, Mike and Christy. Of
course, they are all grown now, and have even given me
some beautiful grandchildren: Jon-Mykel,
Dylan, and Drevyn.
Please check out the page I dedicate to my sons...
I am happily married to my best friend,
were married in 1999.
am very lucky and proud to have found Lee. He is a
wonderful man who laughs all the time. After meeting his
family I know where it comes from. I love them all, and
think the world of his parents. My only regret is that
we live so far apart. I would love to live closer to
Audrey and Richard. Lee
also has a daughter Christy,
and a son, Mike, of whom we are very proud
of, and I am glad to be their step-mother.
My Parents are no longer with us. My father, Glen
Edward Bunch passed on in 1977, and is missed everyday. My mother,
Almeda Louise Reed Bunch Bentley , was very dear to me.
She has been gone for a long time now, but there isn't a
day that goes by that I don't think about her and miss
her. To visit her site, just click on her name above.
My mother and I lived with my Grandparents, Martha Jane
Thomas Becker (known as Aunt Martha), and August Fritz
Becker (known as Papa Beck). They took care of me
while my mother worked. I called my Grandmother
Mama, and my Mother Medalou, her nickname.
In life, we all lose some of the ones we love. It
is hard to let them go, but we all understand that this
is the way of life. Below are links to some of the ones
we hold dear in our hearts, and miss every day.
Please stop by and pay your respects to them.

I have several hobbies, but like
most, don't have enough time to get them all done.
I love to quilt, sew, and do Swedish weaving (thank you my
dear Mother-In-Law for teaching me). She
is also the one who taught me
I, or I should say we, like to cook, when I
am up to it, or we just get tired of the same old thing.
Below is a link to our Recipe Pages. On these pages we
are going to put our old tried and true family recipes,
and also some of our favorites. (Check these pages
often, as new recipes will be added as time goes by.

There is one thing in this life that is irreplaceable..
and that is a best friend. I
have a best friend, whom I consider to be my sister,
since we were both only children, and her name is
could not do a web site and not include her, since she
has been a very big and important part of my life since
I was the very young age of 13.
One thing I know, it is a great thing to have a friend
like I have in Patti. She has been there with me through
all the ups and downs of my life.
know that I don't take the time, or even make the effort
to tell her how much I love her, and how much I
appreciate her for being there beside me. I believe she
knows, but I am telling her here.
I love photography and really enjoy taking
pictures of cemeteries. I know this sounds strange, but
I believe in preserving the headstones for future
genealogists. I like to put the pictures and information
I gather from the cemeteries on a special site set up
for this called
Find A Grave.
am also a transcriber for my favorite site of all, which
is Genealogy Trails. I am the host of five
counties, McClain, Cleveland, Canadian and Grady, all in
Oklahoma. I am also the host for Lamar County in

also enjoying taking pictures of scenery, old buildings
and especially of my family. One never knows when
something will catch your eye and feel like a great
picture. I do admit I am very much a novice at this, but
I am trying to learn more about this hobby.
Hope you enjoy them.
If you click on the flowers below, it will take you to
my Family Photo Pages. As you will be able to
tell, I didn't take most of these, as they are old ones.
I am old, but not that old...
Hope you enjoy them.
Genealogy is my greatest hobby, but alas,
don't find a lot of time to work on it. Eventually I
will have my genealogy up on this site, and
hopefully be able to share my information and maybe even
learn more about my ancestors.
