Robert Hyatt received a handwritten letter from Karan Llewellyn in which she recounts her Hyatt genealogy. Sometime around 2008 as Robert recalls she and her elderly mother visited Emily and Robert in Cherokee on a mission to find info re. Edward Hyatt's Revolutionary War records of which Robert had none. However her mother had a treasure trove of Hyatt genealogy ( perhaps the most extensive of any ) which is now in Karan's hands.

Realize by Ann Weems
If could, I’d write for you a rainbow
And splash it will all the colors of God
And hang it in the window of your being
So that each new God’s Morning
Your eyes would open first to
Hope and promise
If I could, I’d wipe away your tears,
And hold you close forever in Shalom
But God never promised
I could write a rainbow,
Never promised I could suffer for you,
He only promised I could love you
And that I do.

Big Shoes to Fill- unknown author
If you can start your day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you anytime,
If you can forgive your friends for their lack of consideration,
If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when, though no fault of your own, something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can ignore a friend’s limited education and never correct him,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, or politics,
Then, my friend, you’re almost as good as…my dog!
