A great great great Mother’s Day

WARRIOR, Ala. (WIAT) – It was 1932 when Alice McCombs and her husband built a house off Self Creek Road in Warrior, and called it home.

They had three children, three girls and 1 boy.

On May 11, 2013,  six generations of first born females, including Alice sat on a porch swing. In the back yard, dozens of grand children and their children.

Weeks of rain interfered with past attempts for the family to get together for birthdays and holidays. The family is so large, most gatherings are held outdoors. But clear sky’s on Mother’s Day was the perfect back drop for a family gathering.

Alice McCombs has 10 grand children and 19 great grand children. McCombs says she used to sit by the fire place and name each and every one of them but now, “I can’t recall them all,” she says.

“I wonder if I live another year, how many more I’ll have then,” she said jokingly, on the porch swing.

McCombs says, “I’m thankful the good Lord has let me stay here this long.”
