Henriksons return from visit to California


Happy birthday to Damian Miller. It was on Monday, July 6.

My neighbors Jon and Loretta Henrikson went to California recently. They stayed about two weeks.

Stella Dixon of Blackey has been in the hospital. She had pneumonia but is now home and doing better.

My sympathy to the family of Janice Ison Holbrook of Blackey. She died on June 28. She had been sick for some time.

Travis Sturgill of Whitesburg is recovering from knee surgery. He has had so much trouble with it, I hope this helps with the pain he has been in.

Carrie Cornett of Letcher had surgery last week. She said she was having a lot of pain from it. I hope she recovers soon.

All my family got together for the Fourth and had a dinner at my nephew Gary Fugate’s house then went out on the strip job and shot fireworks. We also got to see a lot of other fireworks people were shooting all over the mountain.

Martha Burns of Blackey went down to Frankfort and stayed with her son Dan and Sonya Lusk and their family. They had a cookout July 3. Martha’s daughters Carolyn and Mandy were also there with their families. Kate Smith Lander, formerly of Blackey, also attended.

My husband and son Lee Roy and Justin went to Hindman Thursday and went riding through the hills to Jackson. They also camped out that night. Some of Lee Roy’s family from Ohio were in and went. They came back Saturday evening.

Craig Frazier and his family came in from Raytown, Mo., to spend the Fourth with his mom, Ann Frazier of Knott County. We all went over Sunday and had dinner with them.

Congratulations to Steven Pratt and Beth Smith. They were married on Saturday, July 4. I wish them the best.

Happy birthday to Bruce Gilley Sr. of Doty Creek. It was on July 3 and he turned 78. They had a dinner for him at the Blackey Missionary Baptist Church on Saturday. I got an email from one of Bruce’s grandsons, Elijah Caudill. He is in Texas in basic training for the Air Force. He is doing well. He said it was a lot of work and he was tired of being yelled at. He has to be gone six months. Elijah is the son of Judy Caudill of Cowan and Tim Caudill of Blackey.

Happy birthday to Ethan Kisor of Elk Creek. He will turn 19 on July 9. He is the son of Lisa Kisor of Elk Creek and Robert Kisor of Jeremiah.

Happy anniversary to Randy and Mary Ann Morgan of Isom. It was their 28th on July 4.
