Family is one of the things that at Chaney Construction as a Home Builder Amarillo always say is most important to us. And so this weekend, these last couple of days this weekend, I had an opportunity to sit down with my uncle and my aunts and go over some family ancestry information, and to listen to my aunts and uncles tell stories about their dad who died when they really young was fascinating. This is a man, I’ve never met my grandpa. And I’ve never met him, he died before.
Well, before I was born. And bit to hear stories of him to hear stories of his dad and his brother, and just the trio of them and to learn about where they were from, and where they lived. And to figure out how their journey came to be where they were, and was so fascinating.
It just really, really took someone that I didn’t know, just kind of a ghost the past and brought life to them. And to be able to hear stories, it was like, you know them and to have some insight on to them, and the way that they worked, and their their priority was family family meant the world to them. And they were very just solid on that, that belief that family was, was worth fighting for.
At Chaney Construction a Home Builder Amarillo we feel the same way. And, you know, they were sharecroppers down near Corpus Christi area for many, many, many years. And then, you know, something changed in the economy or the land or for whatever reason, they all packed up and moved to the Texas Panhandle to these small towns, and to be able to continue on their way of life. And then they did migrant farming in the summer times. And they would go up to Wyoming and Wisconsin and different states that needed migrant field workers. And to know that they were willing to pack their bags and leave for summers at a time in order to support their families was very phenomenal.
But even one step for further than that is the kids went with them, you know, they packed up their kids as well to go to these places to live and you know in these Barrick style home so that way they could live at work and work as a family and provide for the kids. But more importantly than the money and the financial support that that brought to their family and their children with the memories. And that was one thing that I really took from our meeting was that the memories of film as young kids in these different places every summer was so neat.
And one of the places that they frequented the most and Wheatland Wyoming they have such fond memories of that place at the diner where they ate out of the, you know, bar that their dad and granddad hung out. And so it was just so neat to see that it was a family or deal. And so, you know, that’s our business is about our family.
And, you know, it’s, it’s not a rare occasion to see our kids out, helping us clean up a job site, you know, sweeping mopping, whatever the case might be that just to me and stills that we’re doing the right thing and having our children help us they may not care for it right now. But someday they’ll have memories of that they will share with their children. And just I hope that those are joyous memories for them. Even if in the moment, it might not feel so joyous to them. But really just being able to take all of these stories and combine them and record them and let these people that are part of our life that we never knew really come to life and take shape and form you know, in our minds and in our hearts. It’s just it’s so heartwarming.
It’s fantastic to be able to have these memories recorded. And, you know, I encourage everyone to sit down with their family is write down what you do know, write down what stories you remember, write down things about, you know, uncles, or cousins or siblings because Sunday those people might be forgotten. If those things are not recorded. And you never share those stories. They’ll be forgotten.
