My sympathy to the family of William Edward Walters of Orchard Branch. He died Sept. 21. My heart goes out to his mother, Virgie Walters of Blackey, and all his family.
Lorene Halcomb of Carcassonne was admitted to Whitesburg Hospital a couple of weeks ago. She was having breathing problems and problems with her heart, but she is home now and doing better. I saw her and her daughter Brenda and she said they wanted her to go to Tennessee for some rehab, but she wasn’t going.
