Kings celebrate 58th wedding anniversary

Hello all, and I do hope everyone is well and staying warm. That’s kind of hard to do around here, especially if one has to be out and about, which I try my best to not have to do. We’ve had some icing, cold and snow, and you can believe I did not venture out. I have this awful fear of falling on ice as I sure don’t want to mess up another arm or leg or hip.

We did have to go out some to get a few necessities, such as bread, milk and some soup beans. I cooked the last mess last week and I need my soup Revival planned

Lewis Creek Pentecostal Church will host a revival with evangelist Fred Wynn from Prague, Okla., beginning Jan. 30. The Sunday night service will begin at 6 p.m., and weeknight services at 7 p.m.

Pastor Ron Oplinger and the congregation invite everyone to attend. beans to survive.

My deepest sympathy to the family of Bill Adams, 75, of Isom. To his wife Jeanette, his three sons, grandchildren and greats, all his family and many friends, my prayers are with you in your time of sorrow. Northeast Ohio

I have talked to Jeanie, and she seems to be doing well.

Chester and Jettie both had colds and Georgia had a doctor’s appointment at the Cleveland Clinic. She probably won’t know any results for a few days, but I do really hope she will soon get some relief. Maybe this time they will find out just what is causing her so much pain and can fix it.

Billy Wayne will celebrate a birthday, and so will Redia. Bill is 64 and Redia will be 63. Happy birthday to both of you, even though we always call them.

Belated anniversary congratulations to Kernel ‘Buddy’ and Doris Phillips King, who celebrated Jan. 12. This is their 58th. They are from Letcher County but their home is now Davenport, Iowa. Doris is one of my former students, and nicer people one could never wish to meet and know. I love you both. Doris and I had a good long telephone visit recently and as always we take a walk down ‘memory lane’.

I haven’t heard anything from Jim Cornett, so I don’t know if they have or have not found their missing schoolmate. While talking to Jeanie who had already received their Eagle, she said she went to school with Jim Cornett at Stuart Robinson. Jim, do you remember Opal Jean Sergent? She also said Elwood Cornett attended at the same time.

I want to send a big hello to all the beautiful people I met at Antioch Church in Louisville. I was there only twice, but if I ever have the chance I would go back in a heartbeat. One could not believe the welcome, respect and love I experienced, not just from the preachers and members but the congregation as well. It’s an experience I will never forget. My love to all.

I have gotten a few letters written, but I still have more to go. I do want to say hello to Oma Hatton, and I sure hope you aren’t snowbound again.

And to Gladys Smith, I hope you and Pete are both well. To Rose Ballard, I sure hope everything is well with your family. To Loretta Adams, are you okay, and how is your son? You and your family will always be in my prayers.

We got a beautiful anniversary card from Buddy and Doris King today. That makes two we have received, the first was from Red’s sister Mae Sowards, Pound, Va.

Red has talked to Charles a couple of times this past week and from what we hear from down Letcher County way it would appear there’s more snow there than here. Of course here in the north all we have to brag about are the cold winds and temperatures, and that really isn’t much to brag about.

I’d better finish this and have it ready for my Gal Friday; she sure is a good granddaughter.

Y’all have a great week, stay warm, stay healthy and may peace be with you always. Love and prayers to all.
