"Bobby" IS my father! Gramma (Marilyn) and Lydia call him Bob, but everyone else I know of call him Robert. Gramma remarried in 1975, to Larry King. He is the grandfather I have grown up with. Gramma goes by Marilyn V. King, and is the president of the Daughters of the Confederacy in Fla. She and Grampa live in Bunnell Fla, and Aunt Lydia and uncle Larry (Filzen) live in Orange county, Fla. Lydia and Larry have one daughter, Jenny...she lives in California, and just married recently. shes in her 30's.
My father has been married 3 times, and has a son from the first marriage, I believe. He is my 1/2 brother Sean. The second marriage didn't produce any children. Then he married my mother, Anne, in 1986. This is after they had had me and my younger brother, Micah. Micah still lives with them.
I always wanted to know more about my grandfather. He was an artist, as you must know...and I am too...I believe that I inherited my artistic skills from him and I decided to pursue a career in art. I currently live in Savannah, I attend Savannah College of Art and Design. I was raised in Atlanta, and in fact my father still lives there. They are in Gwinnett county...and if you know the place, I graduated from Berkmar, class of 99'.
Wow! so now I know a bit more about the family around my grandfather! :) Does your mother remember alot about the car accident? Dad told me that a drunk driver struck them and Gramma suffered a broken arm. I never condone anyone drinking and driving because of that. I have seen some of his paintings and his sketches, he was quite talented! What does your mother remember about that? Well thanks for your posts!

. If you all want to reach him, he would love you hear from anyone of you all.
Your 1/2 cousin,
