Callie Harville was a delightful person to be around. She loved to have company, and would go to great effort to assure everything was just right. Her favorite saying was "laugh and the world laughs with you; cry, and you cry alone." She lived by this philosophy and nobody ever saw Callie cry. As her granddaughter said, "Grandma was the greatest..." and that seems to sum up the feelings of her family and loved ones. As a young mother, Callie loved to sit in the rocking chair and tell her children about the old days, and the tales were far more exciting than any of the books of that day. She meticulously kept a scrapbook of articles, news, events of the day, jokes and cartoons of the newspaper, and photographs of all the family. She obviously wanted her children to admire their heritage and to remember.
