James Joel Anthony


    Our oldest son, James Joel Anthony, was born on May 16, 1969 in Tahlequah, OK.  Unfortunately Joey was born with spina bifida and spent several weeks in the hospital.  He only lived six weeks and six days when he succumbed to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and went back to his heavenly home on July 3, 1969.  He is interred in South Bethel Cemetery in Braggs, Oklahoma.  Alongside his youngest sister Jeni. 

Billie and Joey in June of 1969.

Joey is listening very intently to his proud papa.
