We are really having nice fall weather. No frost so far as for as I can tell.
We have had a good summer season. I really like them all.
We will be having our Union meeting at the Little Cowan Church beginning on Wednesday night, Sept. 8. Several visiting ministers are planning to attend. Everyone is welcome.
I went with Duane and Anna Yonts and J.T. and Carol Caudill to visit with Glennon B. and Thelma Ison on Kingdom Come Creek. They are all my nieces and nephews. We had a good dinner and a real good time. It brought back many good memories of when I used to teach school over there.
Glennon B. was one of my students, and he was such a good child and a good student. He never missed a day. His family was always very cooperative, and helpful in any way they could.
Visiting Bennett and Linda Combs recently were his sister, Elizabeth Looney of Franklin, Oh., and his brother, Watson Combs of Louisville. While here, they went to the Pound Gap Civil War Monument, to the Veterans Museum, and to several other places.
Happy birthday, Sept. 16, to David Combs’s daughter, Amber.
Ramona Combs Finchum is helping plan a Whitesburg High School Class of 1980 reunion sometime in October. For information, call her at (502) 339-9893, or contact her on Facebook.
Yvonne Brown Sutphin’s grandson, Derek Frame, completed Marine boot camp, and has been home in Bedford, Va., for a week’s leave. Remember him in your prayers.
Kevin and Denise Brown welcomed their newborn son, William Alexander, on Friday, Sept. 3. He weighed 7 pounds, and has a beautiful head of hair. Wonder who will give him his first haircut? Kevin or Richard? Both are barbers.
Charles and Faye Banks had lots of company this weekend. Faye’s sister Iva and her nephew, Michael Hatton, Mike’s daughter, Stephanie, his grandson, Wyatt, and Stephanie’s friend, Stacy, from Tiffin and Finley, Oh.
They had a memorial service for Faye’s sister, Wilma. Her son, Mike, brought her ashes back home. She’s laid to rest in the R.B. Caudill Cemetery.
They also went to the Hatton reunion and saw lots of friends they hadn’t seen in a long time.
Iva would have loved to visit more friends, but it seems like time goes so fast. She had to go back home Monday morning. She says ‘hello’ and she misses all of you.
Maybe next year she can come in with Irene Betz. Thank God for good friends.
