Jent family welcomes new baby girl


Stella Dixon of Blackey got to come home from the Pikeville hospital. She had been in almost a week with kidney problems, but she is doing much better. Her granddaughter, Tammy Whitaker, was baptized on Sunday at the Blackey Missionary Baptist Church.

Lois Smith of Caudills Branch, has been in the Whitesburg hospital with pneumonia.

My sister, Debbie, and I went and visited with our cousin, Eric Back, at Letcher Manor Nursing Home. He is not doing too well. His hands always give him a lot of pain, now the same thing is happening to one of his ears.

Congratulations to Benji and Robin Jent of Elk Creek on the birth of their baby girl. Marrisa Isabella was born on Oct. 30. She wasn’t due until the day before Thanksgiving and weighed 5 pounds, 4 ounces. The grandparents are Leroy and Nadine Slone of Knott County, and Raymond and Vernie Jent of Elk Creek. They also have a son, Andrew.

Tommy Halcomb and Virgil Combs, both of Carcassonne, have been in the Hazard hospital. I was told Virgil was in for about two weeks. I’m not sure about Tommy. Both of them have heart and breathing problems.

Happy birthday to Danny Hall of Blackey. It is on Nov. 23. Happy birthday to Lucille Jent of Carcassonne. It was on Nov. 18.

Joe Back of Blackey is in Letcher Manor Nursing Home to recuperate from the accident he had recently when a horse fell on him. I saw his mother, Beulah, up there the day I was there.

On Friday, Dorse, Debbie and Brandie Back and my mom, Jean, all of Elk Creek, went to Coeburn, Va., to a bluegrass show. It’s in a small town over there and it’s held in a old hardware store. It was old-fashioned night and the group was Skyline. They had a soup bean dinner and gave out door prizes. They really enjoyed it Dorse and Brandie have gone there a few times before.
