I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. Ours was great. Randy, Jennifer, Jared and Ethan Isaacs were in visiting with us and Jen’s parents, Tommy and Betty Stansberry.
Jared and Ethan are growing so fast that if we go a month without seeing them we can see how much. They sure make their grandparents proud. They are such fine boys.
Edse, Carol, Keith and Kaylee Baker were here for the egg coloring. Jared and Ethan did the most. Kaylee was a little shy until the hiding of the eggs began. She enjoyed hiding as much as finding them.
We are so thankful that Katina was feeling better. She was so sick for a few days. We are also thankful that Larry Hatton was able to be home, and is doing well and enjoying his family.
Happy birthday to two of Nora Logan’s two greatgranddaughters, Alexis NaShae Mullins and Hannah Nicole Stidham. These two girls are beautiful and we always enjoy seeing them. Alexis’s big day was April 24, and Hannah’s was on the 13th.
Our prayers are going out to the families of all who have lost loved ones this week. Our neighbor Eula Short, who lost a sister, the Albrow Hall family of Hemphill and many others.
Also keep praying for Doris Adams and her son Jason. They are so special to all who know them.
We still need help on the families of Betty Jane Webb and her mother Sarah Mattie
Craft, who were both from Mayking.
Betty Jane had three daughters, Susan, Gladys Sadie and Mattie. Colson
Also a J.J. Webb. Some of these may be buried in the Webb Cemetery. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Another question for a lady in Texas: where was Mater, Ky.?
Bessie Shepherd needs some stories about the Daniel Boone Hotel or the City Cafe. I know some of you had lunch there, met friends or stayed a night there. Just let us know and we will be happy to listen and record. You can reach Bessie at 633-9123.
I talked to Dottie Bentley this past week and was so glad to get pictures from her for the Volume 12 Pictorial. Have you sent your pictures in yet?
I hope Clark Mullins is doing better. He was burned severely by electricity while working on his water heater.
I talked to Rose Ballard the other night and what a delightful lady she is. I want to meet her when she comes to Letcher County again. That girl can write! I know she can dance too. Maybe when she comes in she can go to Hemphill with our friends, Maxine, Joanne and Imogene.
We had a good potluck dinner at the center one day this past week. Opal made her special chicken casserole and Lucky Sexton cooked green beans. That boy can cook! We had so many dishes I couldn’t decide, and of course I ate way too much. We sure miss Bonnie and Velma at the center.
Pray for my sister Linda, who goes for another MRI this week to see if there has been any change. Eliza Bates Combs has been in the hospital but is doing some better and we hope she continues to improve.
