I hope everyone is staying in as much as they can. The weather is taking a toll on me! I even think about going outside and I began to sweat.

Birthday wishes to my brother-in-law Charles Isaacs and our niece Denise Reeves, Amy Baker, Tommye Banks, Marsha Hall, Nettie Nelson, Billy Hatton, Chris Frazier, Sheila Swisher, Angie Cates, Della Johnson, and Sherrie Wilder. I hope you guys have many more!

The Historical Society met at the library. Those attending were Brian Caudill (all the way from Malabar, Fla.), Sam Collins, Merlene Day, Danna Richardson, Sherry Howard, Jean Cook, Donna Cornett, Darlene Collins, Sarah Collins, Buford Caudill, Marsha Banks, Peyton and Ann Reynolds, and myself.

Peyton read the will of his and my ancestor, Christopher Reynolds, dated 1 May, 1654 in Isle of Wight County, Va. He also shared some other facts about the Reynolds family.

It is so good to share your family information. After the meeting some went to Dairy Queen for ice cream.

We meet the second Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at the Harry M. Caudill Library in Whitesburg.

Our hearts are saddened once again this week. We lost a dear friend, Sue Hill. She fought a courageous battle with cancer. May God bless all her friends and family. I hadn’t seen her parents in many years, James Allen Caudill and Norma Jean Caudill.

Letcher County lost another wonderful lady, June Breeding. I will never forget the times we laughed and talked. She was so gracious, and so well loved. We are praying for Hubert and all her family and many friends.

Colson seniors have had a busy week, and the highlight of the week was the trips. We love to shop. Come by the center any time you can and enjoy the good fellowship and good food.

Get well wishes to Sherry Hatton Fields, who is so sick and needs us to keep praying. We love her so much and her sister Margaret is so nice and caring, we love her too.

Charlie Bates came in from Indiana for Sue’s funeral. He spent time with David and also with Rick and Phyllis Yonts. It is always good to see him.

Margaret Hall came in Friday and brought Lettie Hall for Sue’s funeral. Margaret spent the night with her sister Susan Craft at Indian Creek, and Lettie spent the night with Clester and me. Lettie and I visited that evening with Maxine Quillen, her daughter Regina and grandkids, Brandon, Cheyenne and Sydney. We went through a lot of Maxine’s pictures and she has some really old and great family pictures.

After we left Maxine’s we went to Isom and had dinner. There we visited with Anna Belle Wright, Vanessa Day, Doug and Willie Jo Hall, Lois Hill, Ernestine and G.C. Kincer, and Barbara Watson. I promised Anna and Doug that I would be nice to them and I am keeping that promise, but it’s hard to not tell something on them.

I talked to Derriel and Annette Castle last week. They know as many people in Letcher County as I do. I really enjoyed talking to them. I also talked to Phyllis Caudill. We have missed her coming to the meetings.

Stay cool!
