"Greg, you nuisance, get over here. I'm not keeping the food just for you." A young boy, about 8 years old, who had been playing with a ball nearby, put it away and looked up at me. I was distracted by my departing friends who were waving goodbye and smiling at the boy. I watched them as they drove away. I turned around and the boy now stood close to me. He held onto the sleeve of my jacket. I said, "Oh, I didn't know you were right here." The boy leaned closer. I was shocked to see a few tears in his eyes. He spoke carefully, as though he were frightened. "Could you - would you -?" He was trembling. I watched his face and said, "Let's start at, the beginning. I'll tell you my name and you tell me yours. My name is Luella Dew. What's yours?" He tried to smile, "My name is Greg. That's what my grandma named me. My morn just calls me 'nui- sance.'" I looked him in the eye and said, "Greg, your mother certainly doesn't mean those things. I can tell that you are a nice young man. Your grandmother gave you a good name and..." He interrupted me and said, "Not now, not anymore." He was on the verge of crying, "My grandma died. And morn says nobody likes my name so she just calls me "nuisance.'" His mother's voice calling again through the trees pierced my ears. I took Greg s hand and s id, "Let's get you to your house so you can surprise yo Lr mother. Where do you live?" "Just across the street. I wish -- could you -- please Mrs. Dew?" I stopped him for a moment. "Something's been bothering you, Greg. What is it? Tell me." "I-I-would you be my grandma? "Your grandma?" We were almost at the door of his home. I began tO speak when a scowlillg woman at the door said, "You trying to steal my boy?" "Steal your boy?" Was she joking? "Why of course not. I walked him home so we could talk a bit." The scowling woman said, "You mean you wanted to tell him some secrets that you wouldn't want me to hear?" I took a big breath and faced this scowling woman eye-to-eye. "Lady, I would like to invite Greg to visit my home tomorrow. We have a large yard and a friendly dog and -" Greg was almost jumping up and down in his enthusiasm, "Please Ma, please?" Scowling Woman shook her finger at Greg, "Huh? Who's gonna do your See Cabbages page 7 OBITUARIES Chad Lee Marlin Chad was born Oct. 29, 1984 and passed away June 24, 2015.
