Hello everyone. Hope you are all doing well.
This has been a real interesting week for me. Met a lot of folks I hadn’t seen in a while. They all come to Walmart. I think that’s why I go, no, I shop some.
I ran into Della Mae Maggard and her daughter Mary Kathryn Wilson. We had a good visit. Then Mable Absher and her granddaughter Candy Nantz came by and we had a real good visit. Mable hasn’t been doing well and doesn’t get out much.
I guess we had a traffi c jam there for a while. I enjoyed seeing all of them. I like people. I talk to a lot of them by phone. I don’t like to go.
It was good talking to Bessie Shepherd the other evening. When someone wants to know about someone, they call me and guess what — I sometimes know.
It was so nice getting to see my good friend Shelby Jean Feltner. She came to our church and we got real close and she moved away, but we kept in touch. She came to visit her brother Larry Miller, who lives next to me. I got to visit with her and her daughter that I had never met. I really like her brother Larry and his wife Kathy and daughter Christa. They are such good neighbors and we all go to church together.
Our church, Whitco Pentecostal, had a baked spaghetti dinner on Friday and we want to thank everyone that bought dinners and we sold a lot. It was to raise money for our young people to go to church camp at Dayton, Ohio, where Bro. David Miller is pastor.
I went to the visitation of Dorse Wayne Back of Blackey and met so many people there. I got to see three of the girls I started first grade with at Blackey a few years ago, or maybe longer than that, Martha Burns, Hope Campbell and Joanne Walters. They never left Blackey and also Dorse Back that was the best friend of my uncle, the late John Howard. I hadn’t seen him since I was a small girl and I didn’t even know if he was still living. I sure was glad to see him. It made my day. I think about all of Blackey was there.
I saw Gaynell Back there. I hadn’t seen her in many years. She is the sister of Hope Campbell.
It was good seeing Bruce Gilley there and Bro. Elwood Cornett. I even saw Steve Adams whom I called “the quiet man” because he was never quiet. He talks as much as I do. He went to Marlowe Grade School with me.
I didn’t get to mix around with all the other folks there. I thought I was coming back the next day but it didn’t work out and I was so sorry.
May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week if you are able.
