Grandchildren enjoy spring break with grandparents


The Colson seniors had a wonderful week. On Friday they traveled to Hazard for some shopping and of course to eat. Opal Fouts loves to shop. We have been helping seniors with their tax filings and the Repair Affair.

Clester and I traveled to Richmond on Saturday to White Hall Baptist Church for a surprise birthday party for our son’s 40th. Jennifer, Sharon and Amanda did a fantastic party, lots of good food. So many of his church family, friends, co-workers and especially some classmates were there. He was so excited to see Michelle Martin Brooks and Tracy Johnson Adams. Tracy brought her daughter. Becca. That child is beautiful. Tommy and Billie Stansberry spent the weekend with their daughters and also enjoyed the party.

Clester and I also visited with Lettie Hall and Brittany Brock. Brittany is one of our best buddies.

Spending spring break with us and their other grands, Tommy and Billie, were Jared and Ethan Isaacs. We really had a wonderful week with the boys. Jared said it was the best break ever. That child loves to go to Wal Mart!

Congratulations to Keith Baker and Chasity on buying their first home. They moved in during spring break. Welcome to Daniels Branch, Chas!

Get well wishes go out to Landon Sexton, Geneva Akeman, Wilma Collins, Geneva Profitt and Charles Deaton. Charles had hip surgery and is now home. I know Jean is taking good care of him.

The winner of the two Home Interior pictures was Angela Whitaker. The Center would like to thank everyone for their donations. Hobert Sergent got the most donations.

The ‘Red Hatters’ had a wonderful time at the Loretta Lynn concert on Saturday night. I had to miss it but the girls have so much fun no matter where they go.

What is going to happen to the ‘Mill Stones’ at the Millstone bridge? Brenda Williams Ables and husband George were in for the funeral of her uncle, Raleigh Fields, and she called and asked that question. Those stones are part of our history and we do not want them destroyed. Brenda suggested they be used in some way there at the new bridge site. Let the highway department know that we are going to hold it accountable for the stones.

Joann Hall, Fern Sergent and eight members of their family have returned from a week in Myrtle Beach. The weather wasn’t too bad. They enjoyed being together.

Our deepest sympathy to the families of Cecil Caudill and Richard Miles. Richard died in Michigan. He has lots of family and friends in Letcher County. He was married to my cousin, Jewel Baker.

Faith Independent Baptist Church is in revival all this week. Come out any evening and be with us.
