|Me and My Mama and Daddy
Many years later, Daddy spent a lot of time in our home when he was ill with pancreatic cancer. It was a very difficult time for me, but at the same time it gave me many hours to spend with my Daddy. We were able to talk about a lot of things.

One day we were talking about how in the world he came up with my nickname of Boo. I was Mama and Daddy's firstborn, and he thought I was beautiful. He said I was his beautiful-Boo! WHAT?? I was so surprised to hear this. I just assumed all those years my name had come from my sensitivity. How wrong I was! Why had I not asked about this before? Why wasn't I told this? Who knows? My Daddy was one of the few people who used to call me Boo. I do like his reason better than mine.
