Harveys mark 41st anniversary

Big Cowan

Hello everyone. Hope all are surviving the winter weather.

Trying to catch up a little and write whenever I can. Lots of things have been going on.

Late happy birthdays to Kendall Boggs, Oct. 26; Gipsey Brashears turned 91 on Oct. 26; Stella Bates on Oct. 28; Debbie Miles Lester, Nov. 3; John Goedeker, Shelia Hurt, and Donald Harding on Nov. 4; Cathy Boggs and Lisa Pack Fields on Nov. 5; Tammy Turner on Nov. 8; Ryan Neil Miles, 1 year old and Paige Brown, 10 years old on Nov. 11; Hager Trent on Nov. 16; Katrina Rayburn Collins, Nov. 18; and yours truly, Christine Fields, on Nov. 20 will be 62, a sign of retirement and Medicare. Getting old sucks.

In memory of Earl Rayburn and Josh Fields, Nov. 5, both gone three years, not forgotten; Novare Banks Francis, Nov. 7, gone one year, not forgotten.

Late and present anniversaries, Wayne and Tammy Turner, 31 years Nov. 6; Amber and Chad Fields, 10 years Nov. 14; Wayne and Missy Fields, 24 years, Nov. 20, Kenny and Sue Harvey, 41 years Nov. 25.

Also in memory Claudette Halcomb Shively, Nov. 24, she has been gone for one year, and not forgotten; Jimmy Banks, Nov. 28, been gone two years and not forgotten; and Bill Maggard Sr., one year ago Nov. 29, we miss you Buddy.

More birthdays, Gant Astor Fields Jr. Nov. 29, Ina Griffith, and Kathy Mullins.

New births, Chris and Melissa Turner new grandson of Wayne and Tammy Tuner, congratulations to all.

So sorry that Charlie Miles died Nov. 13. He would have been 70 or 71 on Christmas Day. He is a great loss to the community. Even though he was crippled, it never kept him from going places on his four-wheeler or friends taking him. He had been sick for some time.

He was a son of the late Ettie and Jonah Miles and is survived by a sister, Tootsie Ratliff of Cowan, and several nieces and nephews; his childhood and present friends, Archie Fields, Tommy Fields, Delsie Banks and Jim Howard Banks, and his caregiver/nephew, Bobby ‘Bear’ Davis.

We will be lost without him. Charlie helped them work on their cars, trucks, etc. His visitation was on Friday, Nov. 15 at 6 p.m., and his funeral was on Saturday at 1 p.m. Sorry I missed both. I was in Lexington with my husband.

I have fond memories of Charlie, so I will remember him as he was.

Well folks, I’ve got to go hoping all have a good week. Keep our family in prayer and pray for all those who are in need.

Hoping everyone has a good Thanksgiving. Be thankful for what you have. God supplies our needs. Until next time.
