      Very cool. Thanks for the info. Seeing something like The Square is a rarity in cities today, and I like seeing something like that. My parents grew up in Sebring and they had The Circle. I haven't been there since the very early 70s, so I don't know if they have that anymore.

      Morning, thanks for replying. I loved the Marietta Square. Had a lot of fun there when I lived in Woodstock. Took my girlfriend to the Strand to see "Casablanca" for Valentine's Day a few years back. Is Hemingway's still open?

        Yes it is! Some minor changes in the stores that surround the square, but nothing dramatic. Some good fine dining to be had there!

      Hey, where in N Georgia are you? I lived in Ellijay for awhile, then lived in Woodstock for almost eight years. I miss the change of seasons and the weather.

        Hello UF24ou14 ! I am familiar with Ellijay
        I moved up to the Metro Atlanta area, from Jacksonville, to Lawrenceville back in 1991. I stayed there for almost 25. I now reside in the Cobb County, Marietta area.

        I still come back to see family and friends. But those are short visits.

      Thanks mike.
      I got the same religious training while growing up in Catholic schools.
      So did my father.
      I know that is why it was so easy for him to make peace with the world and God.
      He is actually enjoying his last days here on earth.
      I hope that all of us can do the same when it is our time.

      Hey man. I know you don't know me from Adam, but I was reading about your Dad. This may be something that you can find comfort in. It was obviously designed in a way that a child would understand, but that's ok...the principles are true for everyone. This is actually a link to Bob Tebow's (Tim's Dad's) website. I've prayed for you and your family.
