Quentin started working as a substitute mail carrier and later (about 1949) started working as clerk in the Post Office at Tuttle so we started having a little more money to spend. In February, 1956, he got a rural mail route at Amber, Oklahoma. He carried the mail until November 15th, 1956 when he died of a brain hemorrhage; age 36, he lacked two weeks being 37. This was a sad day for Kenny, Terry and me. I didn’t know what I could do to make a living. I didn’t know how to do anything but clean house. I carried mail for 3 months at Amber, in Quentin’s place, until they appointed a carrier. We got $125.00 per month annuity, $4,000 insurance from the Post Office, and $1,500 from Universal Life Insurance. Since the place we lived in belonged to Grandmother Porter, we bought a house in town for $3,800. And spent $700 on it before we moved in. Uncle Gail and Uncle Dwight helped use fix it up. We were very comfortably situated.
