Fields family holds reunion at state park

Big Cowan

Our sympathy goes out to Janice Holbrook’s family. She died June 28. She is survived by a son, Torrence Holbrook Jr., and two brothers, Alex Ray Ison and Garland David Ison, both of Premium, and three sisters, Susie Banks and JoAnn Fields, both of Premium, and Lois Tackett of Jenkins, fiancé, Tim Kimbley of Black, and her mother, Eula Back Ison of Premium. She was preceded in death by her father, Lawrence Ison, a brother, Lawrence Ison Jr., and a sister, Caroline Ison.

Her son, Junior, was best friends with my nephew, Marty Allen Fields, the late son of Archie Ray Fields. The funeral was at noon, July 1, at G. Bennett Adams Church at Premium, with Eli Smith and Robert Halcomb officiating.

Also our sympathy goes out to the William Lewis family. I didn’t know it was Kathy (Keith) and Vicki (Greg) Boggs’s dad until I read The Mountain Eagle. Sorry for your loss. Keith and Greg are my cousins.

We had the Willie and Susan Fields reunion on Saturday, July 4, at Kingdom Come State Park. We had lots of fellowship and good food. We were stuffed.

It seems like every year someone new attends. This year Phyllis Fields, the daughter of the late Shelby Fields, and her husband, Frank Haas of Henryville, Ind., were present. Afterward they came by my house with my cousin, Lou Callihan of Charlestown, Ind., to have some pictures copied. It’s always good to spend time with family.

My son, Chad, and his wife, Amber, came in from Greensburg, Ind., for the reunion, and also just to get away. It was good to see them.

Wayne Fields and his family had been to Pigeon Forge, Tenn., and just returned sometime on the Fourth. I guess they had a good time.

My brother, Archie, has been having a rough time healthwise. Keep him in your prayers.

Our pastor, Johnny Collier, wife Ann, daughter Lisa and grandson John Simmonds, all went to Lexington for the Fourth, to the home of their daughter, Becky, and husband Millard Bates. They had a good weekend.

They returned Sunday afternoon, and stated that it was good to just get away. We missed them but are glad they enjoyed their trip.

I met a nice lady the other day from Linefork, Mavis Mineard, and I want to say hello to her. She used to work with my brother-inlaw, Eddie Wolfe.

Everyone have a great week and attend the church of your choice. Be good to one another and show your friends and neighbors that you love them. Don’t just tell them.

The same way with God, go to the house of worship and show Him you are there because you love Him, and not for other people. Churches are starting to fall apart because they have lost their love for God. We need to pray more and attend church more often.

Well, enough of my preaching. Love all of you!!
