‘Hoot’ Campbell comes in for visit

Jeremiah


A team of women from Whitesburg First Baptist Church recently served in the Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Processing Center in Charlotte, N.C. The group worked alongside more than a thousand other volunteers to inspect and prepare gift-filled shoeboxes for shipment to needy children worldwide. The Southeast Kentucky Collection Site in Whitesburg donated 10,184 gift-filled shoeboxes to Samaritan’s Purse. Pictured (left to right) are Sharon Short, Beth Little, Lee Adams, JoAnne Shepherd, Elisa Cook and Christina Fisher.

It seems like we were lucky not to get all the ice and snow that was predicted for our area last weekend. And thankfully the flooding wasn’t too bad on Friday night.

Recently Danny ‘Hoot’ Campbell was home for Thanksgiving visiting with his family. Autumn helped out with the recent blood drive at Blackey Community Center.

Rodney Ison is still having problems with his back and leg and will see a specialist this week. He and Geraldine haven’t been out and about for about three weeks now, and we’ve missed seeing them. Hopefully the doctor can find something to help him.

Everyone was happy to learn that Toby Breeding’s recent tests came out well. Many prayers had been sent up for him and his family during his recent doctor appointments.

Our sympathy to those who recently lost loved ones to death. Our friend Lass Burchfield of Taulbee recently died in Letcher Manor, where she had spent the last few years. A very sweet lady she was. Georgie Caudill, another fine lady from the Linefork area, was also called away by death, and former Blair Branch resident Den Arthur Adams died in Paulding, Oh. He had such a love for his family and the mountains he called home.

Our prayers are with all these families during their sorrow.

Irene Jent’s daughter, Debbie, would love to have Irene’s friends and family to send their Christmas cards to her at this address: Irene Jent, c/o Debbie Adams, 8032 North Old State Road #67, Mooresville, Ind. 46158.

They haven’t been able to come in due to the weather conditions and hopefully our cards will cheer them up.

Elwood Cornett’s sister, Mildred, recently had hip surgery and is doing pretty well with it.

Homer Smith has been having skin cancers taken from his face and had to go back to Pikeville for a little more surgery to remove them. He would like to thank all those who have sent donations for the upkeep of the two cemeteries above Dixon Memorial Church in the past years, but he will be stepping down as overseer this year.

We hope that someone else has the time to get involved and will take over the upkeep. I’m sure it’s not an easy job, but if anyone wants to, please let Homer or someone else know because the way time flies, grass will be growing again before we know it.

Sorry to learn that Lillie Moss Hale has been in the hospital, as well as ‘Deeb’ Adams and Derrick Williams. I hope all are feeling better by this time.
