Dedication This storybook is dedicated to Nankey and Allie's darling grandchildren. At this date in 1990
there are only five of you, youngest to oldest: Alice Ann, Brian, Elizabeth, Jayne and Vern. How welcome you
all are, as well as any more who come to join this treasured contingent. May you enjoy reading or hearing
these stories read to you as I enjoyed writing and collecting them for you. Living with and loving Allie was a
great part of my early life. It is my pleasure to pass it on to you. You are from a rich and varied gene pool,
half Workman-Eiche1berger and the second half handpicked for you by your Eichelberger parent. May it
stand you in good stead as you grow and learn about your wonderful life ahead. I shall end this book with
the resolution your Grandfather Allie put in another book. It is one you can enjoy in years to come when you
outgrow this one. Long after you forget these little stories please remember the meaning of the resolution Allie
With a heartfull of Love. Aunt Tense
RESOLUTION This book is dedicated first to the Eichelberger family and its many members and connections, the boys and girls, women and men who share the
great sense of belonging and the common heritage associated with knowing one's ancestry. Second, this book is to remind us to maintain a reasonable sense of
values, for none of us gets out of this world alive. Resolve, therefore, to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and
tolerant of the weak and the misguided. Sometimes in life each of us will have been all of these.
Taken from the Eichelberger Family Book that Allie Eichelberger wrote and compiled.
