Church marks Pastor Appreciation Day

Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well and keeping warm. I don’t think I’m ready for cold days.

It was cold over the weekend, and it’s supposed to get colder at night. I think I will stay indoors if I don’t have to go out.

I appreciate my pastor Bro. John Conn and his wife Alicia for taking me to the Hiram Trinity Church to hear Bro. David Miller preach. My nephew, Bro. Caleb Howard, is the pastor there. It was Pastor Appreciation Day.


It was good to see an old friend of Marlowe there, Betty Dixon, the wife of the late Willis Dixon, who was one of our neighbors when he was growing up, and also the nice lady with her. She told me her name and I told her I wouldn’t remember it, and I didn’t! I saw so many people that I can’t remember them all.

I talked to Jenetta Howard, and she wasn’t feeling well. We all love her.

My sister Judy Greene spent a few days with Jerome Hatton, and she took my sister Louise Shepherd and me out to lunch. We had a great evening with her and her two grandsons.

We had a taco dinner sale at our church on Friday, and it went real well. It was delicious, and our pastor, Bro. John Conn, wants to thank all the people who came and helped out, the men and women.

It was good seeing Helen Brown at Food City, and she looked so good! She had been in poor health a while back, and I hadn’t seen her in a long time.

I see her son, Roy Wayne Brown, and his wife Lisa pretty often, and they always find something to do for me, even finding something in the store I couldn’t find. They are real nice, friendly people.

I talked with Dorthy Tacket. She is not feeling real well. Her shoulder is still store.

My son Billy Hatton says they all miss her at the Rec Center. Her sisters, Pearl Noble and Linda Hall, are there every day and they have coffee.

I just heard that Jenetta Howard is in the hospital. I hope she is doing all right. I’ll try to get up there and visit with her.

I’m glad I finally heard from Elzie Ray Hatton. His wife was having health problems, and he had been having some also. I always send him a birthday card on Aug. 19, and it’s also my son Billy’s birthday, so I always think of his birthday.

I miss my friends when they forget to keep in touch with me. Seems like everyone is on Facebook now and I don’t have that.

I hope Iva ( Absher) Cheatham is doing better, and also Bertha (Page) Dye has been having health problems, along with her son Jack.

It was good hearing from my brother Hillard Howard in Florida. He and his wife will be having a warm winter, and we will try to stay indoors when it’s too cold to be out.

We get used to it after all these years. We are hoping this winter is not as cold as the weatherman is saying it will be.

We offer our sympathy to the family of Pauline (Trent) Webb, the mother of our sheriff, Danny Webb. I knew her a long time ago when we were young. She lived at Whitco.

We have lost so many friends, but we are all getting older, even if we don’t feel like it.

It was good seeing Amy O’Rourke at Sunday school last week. She has been having a lot of health problems and we appreciate her. She has always been a great help to our church.

We all love our church and our pastor, Bro. John Conn.

There has not been a lot going on this week, so I won’t bore you. May God bless you and all your family.

Try to be in church somewhere this week if you are able.
