Marty and Mary Richardson hosted a Mother’s Day get-together on the Saturday before Mother’s Day. Those attending were their daughter Ashley and boyfriend Phillip, Phillip’s mother, Marsha and boyfriend Tim, Glen and Sue Banks, Lola May Richardson and Benita Collins, Edison and Pam Banks and daughters Haley and Nicole with boyfriend Brandon.
They really enjoyed having the get-together there. They just wished that Mary’s sister Amanda and her family could have been there with them also.
Ashley and Phillip surprised Mary and Marty on Mother’s Day morning by making a wonderful breakfast for all of them. It all tasted really good and was very much appreciated.
