I hadn’t planned on having another column before Christmas, but since I had a little time I decided to do a small column after all.
The funeral for Mary Caudill Shepherd was held last Wednesday. It was a very nice service for such a sweet lady, with many fond recollections of her life from her brother, Jim T., and the other ministers.
Other than her husband, Gene, she leaves behind two brothers, Herbert Daniel and Jim T. Caudill, and a host of nieces, nephews, other family and friends.
On Thursday, Merle and Eolia Caudill came in to visit Eolia’s sister, Ila Adams. They stayed and sat with her while Tammy went to a doctor’s appointment.
Our little nephew, Derrick Williams, has been sick for about two weeks now. He spent a few days in the hospital and will see a specialist soon to see what’s going on with him. Amber said he is feeling better the last couple of days.
Our Homemaker group attended a play at the Barter Theatre last Tuesday. We checked out a few antique shops and had a good lunch at a barbeque place called The Hardware Store while there. I think we had about 14 or 15 who went, and we had a good time.
Roy Kenon Smith and his son Roy came in from Wheelersburg, Oh., to check on Roy Kenon’s sister, Lillie Moss Hale, who is in the nursing home and has not been feeling well lately.
A few who recently had birthday were: Arnetta Mae Slone and Liberty Adams Campbell on the 19th, both had their families celebrating with them for dinner and cake; on the 20th, Linda Jarrett, Jon Henrikson, Tonya Wright and Donna Griffie. I hope all had great birthdays.
Merry Christmas and happy New Year to all, and may God bless all of us during this holiest of holidays.
