Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing well.
I can’t believe it’s time to write again. Time goes so fast! I don’t believe it went fast like that when I was young. We had to wait so long for birthdays and Christmas. But it’s not like that now.
I haven’t been out and about much. I had a little fall and got a big black eye and a knot on my head. I sure looked terrible. It didn’t hurt and I didn’t break anything, but I tried to keep out of sight as much as possible.
I’m almost back to normal, whatever that is. I didn’t miss church or the family reunion.
I called Emma Lou Engle the other day. She is a very sick lady and needs everyone’s prayers. Also the daughter of Belinda and Billy Conn is real sick. Please pray for Tonda.
I got a call from our cousin, Ruby Howard. She needs prayer and her son Bill had a heart attack and really needs prayer. They live in Ft. Wayne, Ind.
I was sorry I couldn’t go to my cousin Ken Howard’s funeral. My cousin Ida Hatton and her husband Roger went. He was Ida’s brother.
I enjoyed talking to Clarence Banks’s daughter at our church yard sale. I think her name is Audrey. I don’t know her married name. Her sister was there also. Their dad worked at Marlowe with my dad and my husband Clyde. I thank her for the nice things she said about my news.
I was sorry I wasn’t able to help Janet Brown of Pennsylvania locate Shirley Brown, who was living in Whitesburg in 1995, and who had a son, Robert, and a daughter, Robin. She was from New Jersey.
I told her we once had a Shirley Brown, but she is Shirley Sexton now.
If anyone knew this person, she left her phone number with me.
I was so glad to have my son Rob of Owensboro, spend four days after our reunion and Memorial Day, but I’m missing him now. He is so good to call me often. We can talk for an hour or more.
My son Astor ‘Red’ and his family have been on vacation at Hilton Head, S.C. They should be home by now. I’m sure they had a great time.
I talked with Jenetta Howard and she is improving and doing better, but I’m sure not as fast as she would like. I hope she gets to go home soon. She is homesick.
We have so many people sick and so many have passed away. Our sympathy goes out to the family of Nancy Wise-Duty. I didn’t know her, but I knew her grandparents, Betty and Johnny Wise.
May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week if you are able.
