THE CLOUD, CARTER, SNYDER & RUDOLPH FAMILY

Updated February 25, 2004

About Our Family Research


HELLO! FAMILY
IN CASE YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE FAMILY AND SOME OF US REALLY NEED TO BE ENLIGHTENED! ESPECIALLY MY BROTHER MR.ROBERT (ROBBY)
HENRY CLOUD. HE ONLY KNOW WHAT OTHER PEOPLE WHO WEREN'T REALLY QUALIFIED TO SHINE MY FATHER'S SHOES! WHATEVER MY FATHER LACKED IN EDUCATION ,HE DEFINETLY DID NOT LACK IN LOVING HIS CHILDREN ALL ELEVEN OF US! HE WAS A STERN MAN SOMETIMES HARD TO THE CORE,BUT IT STEMS BACK WHERE HE CAME FROM.HE LEFT HOME AT 14 YRS.OLD I'M NOT MAKING ANY EXCUSES FOR HIM ,BUT CAN YOU IMAGINE A MAN ALL ALONE LEFT WITH 11 KIDS WORKED IN THE COAL-MINE ALL HE KNEW HOW TO DO.HE MUST HAVE BEEN A HELUVA FATHER BECAUSE FIRST OF ALL OTHER PEOPLE 'S KIDS CAME TO BALTIMORE WITH OUR FAMILY.THE
PEOPLE ENTRUSTED MY FATHER (I'M VERY PROUD OF MY FATHER)WITH THEIR CHILDREN FROM LAYLAND,& BECKLEY WVA.TO BALTIMORE MD.
I USE TO SEE HIM CRY WHEN I'DE COME HOME HE'DE BE WIPING HIS EYES
STANDING AT THE DINING ROOM CLOSET AT 540 W.LANVALE ST.I'DE JUST WALK ON BY.FOR YOU SEE I TOO WAS CRYING BECAUSE HIS WIFE(WHO WAS HIS LIFE-LONG COMPANION WAS DEAD! AND HE HAD TO FEEL LOST, LONELY AND SCARED, WOULDN'T YOU???? I ALSO CRIED BECAUSE OUR MOTHER WAS GONE NEVER TO RETURN. I WAS 12 YRS OLD AT THE TIME
SO HOW WERE WE TO GO ON WITH MY MOTHER DYING !WE WERE ALL ALONE
IT WAS LIKE AN EMPTY SPACE THAT COULD NEVER BE FILLED BROUGHT BACK.NEITHER ONE OF US THAT WERE THERE AT THE HOUSE TOOK MY MOTHER TO THE HOSPITAL (SHE NEEDED TO GO THAT MORNING NOT THAT NIGHT!WE WILL ALWAYS CARRY THAT AS A BURDEN AROUND WITH US FOR THE REST OF OUR LIFE (SPEAKING FOR MYSELF OF COURSE)BUT I'M SURE THE REST OF THE FMILY FEELS THE SAME WAY UNTIL WE DIE!BUT MAMA!
NOTICE I SAID MAMA! LONG TIME FROM 12 YRS. OLD HUH?.WE LOVED OUR MOTHER !WE JUST MADE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE AND WE'RE PAYING FOR IT
FROM THE MRS. DOROTHY LOUISE OLIVER TOOK HER TO THE HOSPITAL ,BUT MAMA DIED. SO NO-ONE CAN FEEL WHAT WE ARE FEELING
FROM THAT DAY TO THIS!WE TRULY ARE SURVIVORS BECAUSE EVERY ONE HAS SUFFERED AND WE ARE ALL STILL SISTERS AND BROTHERS, EVEN THOUGHMY OTHER SYBLINGS HAVE PASSED ON! SO YOU SEE MY MOTHER & FATHER LOVED EACH OTHER TILL THEY DIED.MY FATHER DIDN'T TRY TO GET MARRIED EVEN THOUGH HE COULD HAVE! HE TRULY LOVED MY MOTHER
PLUS HE CARRIED OUT MY MOTHER'S LAST WISH ASK (DOT)? "SHE SAID TAKE CARE OF MY BABY"!HE SENT ROBERT TO OUR GRANDMOTHER (BIGGIE)
WE DIDN'T KEEP IN TOUCH! WE WERE A DISFUNCTIONAL FAMILY WITH DRAMA! BIGGIE RAISED HIM ,BUT SHE WAS OUR GRANDMOTHER TOO!
PLUS WE STILL HAD THE GUILT OF OUR MOTHER ON US. WHAT WE ALL NEED TO DO THATS LEFT IS TO GET ALONG LIKE A FAMILY!
BUT ITS OKAY BECAUSE LIKE DOT SAID.

"THEY CANT TAKE AWAY THE LOVE"!
BIGGIE WAS THE ROOT
UNCLE JOHN WAS THE DRIVING FORCE
MAMA WAS "LOVE"
DEADY WAS THERE!TO THE END!
ANY CLEAN OF ANY BLEMISH, OR FAULT LET THEM STEP UP TO THE PLATE
FOR YOU SEE I TOO AM A COAL-MINER'S DAUGHTER!
AND
AM
PROUD
TO
BE
A
CLOUD!

THE CLOUD FAMILY
