He developed a brain tumor that was removed, but he was left so that he had very little speech. He loved Homer, Lessie's husband. When Homer would go to the doctor, Lessie would go by and visit Arthur and Beulah. Arthur called Homer "Hickey." One week they ran late, so that Lessie had to go in without Homer. Arthur began calling "Hickey, Hickey." Lessie told him Homer would be back. When dinner time came, Homer wasn't back. Lessie went in and started to sit by Arthur. He covered the chair with his hand and said, "No, no, Hickey." Lessie sat down on the other side, but Arthur wouldn't eat until Homer came back. He was all smiles then.

Lessie Viola Carpenter1,2

F, (28 November 1907 - 29 September 1995)
FatherJohn Warren Carpenter (1 May 1871 - 23 Jan 1941)
MotherIrena Viola Dean (26 Dec 1873 - 23 Sep 1958)
Birth*28 November 1907 Lessie was born at Clay Co., Alabama, on 28 November 1907.3 
Marriage*31 October 1926 She married Edward Homer Hampton on 31 October 1926 at age 18. 
Married Name31 October 1926  As of 31 October 1926, her married name was Hampton. 
Death*29 September 1995 She died at Beckwood Manor Nursing Home, Anniston, Calhoun Co., Alabama, on 29 September 1995 at age 87. 
Burial* Her body was interred at Edgemont Cemetery, Anniston, Calhoun Co., Alabama
Biography* When Lessie was about ten, she came down with rheumatic fever. They weren't sure she would survive. Nobie remembers that she didn't have to do a lot of work then. I remember Grandmother telling me that she had to take some medicine that had a lot of iron in it and that it made her teeth really bad.
     Along about that time, Joe Culpepper wrote a poem and sent it to Lessie. She always told me that he really wasn't kin, but I have since learned that he was her great-uncle since he married her grandfather Dean's sister. The poem was beautifully hand-written and colored. It was an acrostic poem with the first letter of each line being a letter in her name, Lessie: "My Best Wishes for You
L ong may you love and the world be better because you live in it.
E very good thing you strive for in life may you easily win it
S weetest pleasures that mortals on this Earth may know
S astisfy thy soul as into fair sweet womanhood you grow.
I n all the sweetest virtues that make woman near divine
E ver as a guiding star, serenely in your circle shine.
Most Sincerely, Uncle Joe Culpepper (age 77) Home: Americus, Georgia"      
.
While Homer and Lessie were courting, Homer went by to see Lessie one day. After he left, it came a tremendous downpour and flooded some of the low areas. Lessie had sat down to make some clothes. Nobie came to her and told her there was no use in her continuing to make clothes, that Homer had been swept away and drowned.
.
When they decided to marry, they didn't tell anyone. They wanted to get married and present it as a finished accomplishment. When they arrived at the church, they were surprised to discover their family and friends there. In fact, it seemed that everyone was there except for Lessie's best friend. She wouldn't go because she wasn't invited.

Also from Sharon Boling, written by Jennifer Hurd:

"Her wrinkled face looks up at me with delight, her aged eyes shining
brightly everytime I see her. So much beauty lies beneath her fragile body
and her thin gray hair. She reminds me of an angel and she always brings me
joy. This 84-year-old woman named Lessie Hampton makes everyone who knows
her feel this way.
I met Mrs. Hampton at the nursing home when I visited there with my youth
minister for church devotion. She spoke softly, telling me her name and
thanking me for my visit. Her smile never left her face for she loves to
have a new friend around to say hello to.
Mrs. Hampton is a very intelligent, old woman, full of nothing but
sweetness. She's the kind who'll always be there to help anybody with any
problem. She's brave and not afraid of death. She's put all her faith in
God and says everytime I see her that she'll see me soon if the "Good Lord is
willing."
She's shown me stacks of pictures and loves to tell stories. I've seen
pictures of her old church, parents, children, grandchildren and friends.
She's told me stories about when her church burned down and when her children
were born.
When she was young, she was beautiful, tall and slim brunette. She loves
to keep things from the past and there's a story behind everything she
treasures. She's always got something to tell me of her family, church and
experiences.
I always enjoy visiting Mrs. Hampton because she never fails to bring a
smile to my lips, but sometimes tears to my eyes as well.
Even though I haven't known Mrs. Hampton very long, I've learned much
about her and she's taught me a lot about changes in life. I've always
thought that getting old meant the end of the most precious part of life, but
she's proved to me that it is just the beginning of the most precious part of
life.
Her wheelchair, gray hair and wrinkled skin have disguised the tall
beauty she's always known, but she's still a beauty to me and to everyone who
knows her kind heart. Jennifer Hurd"

I have to concur with Jennifer, she was and still is a beauty to me.
Sharon.

Edward Homer Hampton1

M, (28 January 1906 - 10 March 1972)
FatherThomas Edward Hampton (19 May 1881 - 2 Mar 1918)
MotherCinthia M. Carpenter (27 Feb 1880 - 31 Mar 1943)
Birth*28 January 1906 Edward was born at Lineville, Clay Co., Alabama, on 28 January 1906. 
Marriage*31 October 1926 He married Lessie Viola Carpenter on 31 October 1926 at age 20. 
Death*10 March 1972 He died at Citizen's Hospital, Talladega, Talladega Co., Alabama, on 10 March 1972 at age 66.2 
Biography* Sometime after his marriage, Homer rearranged his name from Edward Homer to Homer Edward. Although Homer died at Citizen's Hospital in Talladega, AL, his home at the time was in Anniston, AL. He had a disease called myelofibrosis. This disease, similar to leukemia, is passed through the females to their male children.
.
Homer loved the church, but he loved his Lord even more. He was ordained a deacon by Bellview Baptist Church in 1936. He believed in the literal interpretation of the Bible. One time, the church he belonged to at the time, Leatherwood Baptist Church in Anniston, was voting on new deacons. One of them, larry Jennings, was married, but had no children. The scripture in I Timothy 3:12 says: ". . . ruling their children and their own homes well." If he had no children, he couldn't rule them well. Therefore, Homer voted against him.
.
According tohis daughter Sara, "One of the highlights in Daddy's life was being able to help organize and build the first Bellview Baptist Church (in Lineville, AL). The services were held in our home for a long time while the church was being built. Mama had an old pump organ which she loved to play so this provided our music. It was in this church that I later accepted Christ as my Savior." According to records obtained from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, the church was organized in 1942. Homer was the Sunday School superintendent for several years and was also one of the messengers to the Associational meeting. From Bellview, they moved to Good Hope Baptist Church.
.
Homer worked night shift at the Alabama Water Pipe Plant in Anniston. During revival and on Sunday mornings when he had to work, he would come home and sleep a couple of hours. Then he'd get up and go to church. He and Lessie always had the preachers over to eat at least once during revival, whether it be the lunch meal or the supper meal.
.
In the late 60s, he developed myelofibrosis. Even on his bad days, it seemed as though he was in church. Charles Rutherford, pastor of Leatherwood Baptist Church at the time of his death, said that he had vivid recollections of Homer's last day at church. The service was really good that morning, and Homer really seemed to be enjoying it. he said that suddenly the Lord revealed to him that Homer would not be at church again. He breathed a prayer that Homer would be especially blessed that day. He was.
.
Although he did not drink later in life, he did drink a great deal when he was young. The change came when someone picked him up out of a ditch drunk. He never, apparently, drank again. However, he did smoke and loved his Camels. People would get on to him about smoking, but he always replied that when God convicted him of smoking, he would quit. he never did. The last week he lived, he had to be hooked up to oxygen so that he could breathe; nevertheless, he begged for a cigarette.
.
Even though he smoked, he didn't want his grandchildren to smoke. So, he tried to teach them early the results of smoking. When Elaine (Ruby's daughter) and Ronnie (Sara's son) were both young, they managed to get his cigarettes off of the refrigerator. After much pleading, he let them smoke some. Another time is related by Ronnie: "My favorite memory of Grandad Hampton goes back to when I was about 4 years old. . . .Grandad was smoking one of his non-filtered cigarettes and I wanted to be like him. 'Please, please, let me have one.' 'No! No!' But I continued to pester him until he finally relented -- assuring me that I would not like it. No matter, I had to have a Grandad cigarette -- Puff-puff. Turn green -- Dizzy -- Extreme nausea -- Foul taste. Thank you to this day, Grandad, for my lasting impression of cigarettes.
.
Homer was very special to all of his grandchildren, but perhaps more so to Pam (Pauline's youngest daughter). Pam stayed with them through the week while Pauline worked; on weekends, she went home with her mom. Homer taught her how to ride her tricycle. He put her feet on the pedal and would push one foot down and then the other until she learned to ride. After he died when Pam was only six, she told Lessie that she wished she could walk on the golden streets with him.
.
Elaine related that on a trip to the grocery store with Homer, she stayed in the car while he went into the store. She began playing around and knocked the car out of gear. It started rolling back into the street. Homer got there first and stopped the car. She says, "But you know, he didn't whip me. Just hugged me 'cause I didn't get hurt.
.
When he ate oatmeal, he would break his toast into bits and drop them in the oatmeal. Then he would dip the oatmeal and toast out together to eat them. He also loved hot pepper and would always have some in his garden. He always had a garden until he got so ill that he couldn't work it.
.
When his first granddaughter (Sharon) got married, he wouldn't attend the wedding. He said he had been to one wedding and that was enough.
.
Lessie and Homer were supposed to get married in the spring despite objections from both mothers. (They were third cousins, and the mothers insisted that something would be wrong with their children.) Homer had saved up about $500. A friend, Genie Burchfield, wanted him to sink the money into a cotton crop. Genie said they could make a lot of money and for him not to listen to what Lessie had to say. Homer loved Lessie and wanted her to share in the decision. So he asked her about using the money for the crop. She told Homer that until they got married, the money was his to do with as he pleased. He put the money into the cotton crop. But cotton sank to $.05 a pound. They didn't even make enough money to pay for what they had bought. Because of this, Homer and Lessie didn't get married until the fall.
.
When their children were very small, Lessie wanted a sewing machine. Homer worked in a field for a man and earned $.50 a day in order to pay for her a Singer treadle sewing machine. It is currently in Pauline's possession.
