Haleyville Historical Events

1998 - Christmas
My mother was born & raised in Haleyville & all my family on my mother's side still reside there (4/1999). My mother & I were in Haleyville for Christmas 98, we arrived the morning after the big ice storm hit, we didn't have any electricity for 2 days . In a way it made it a very special Christmas because we had heat, food & family it reminded me of being a child & visiting my grandparents. Not having any electricity allowed us to have no distractions like television, radio, we had an abundance of time for talking about the past, grandchildren, & our love for each other & love one's departed from this earth. It was the best Christmas I've had in 25 years!

My grandparents are Tony & Bernie Arnold, though my grandfather (Tony ) is deceased I'm sorry to say; but, all my memories of him are happy ones. Visits to Haleyville as a child to see them were my greatest memories of all. My grandparent's were poor & picked cotton for a living, but the one thing they had plenty of was the LOVE they showed us grandchildren & that was something money couldn't buy. I wouldn't trade it for all the money in the world! I'll be 43 on July 26th (1999) & there's nothing I wouldn't give to relive just one Christmas as a child in Haleyville with all my family. As you get older you realize its family that makes life worth living, money can't buy that kind of happiness! So to my Grandmother Arnold, Aunt Dean, Aunt Jean, Aunt Glinda, Aunt Faye, Uncle Tony, Uncle Odell, all my cousins, & my parents, & to my little brother, Randy, who was killed by a drunk driver at only 21 years of age, I love all of you dearly & would like to thank you all for making me feel so loved. I truly have been blessed to have such a loving family in a world where so many people are not so fortunate. So to all my family I LOVE YOU !!!
