I hope all mothers had a happy Mother’s Day on Sunday and got to spend it with those they love.
Coreen Pridemore (Mom) and I attended the Little Dove Church on Sunday. After services Merle and Linda Caudill’s daughter, Delena Winstead, was baptized. We’re very happy for her and her family and hope that her husband, Bill, is feeling some better.
Bob attended the memorial meeting at the Old Doty Creek Church, as did many others in the community. Some of their ministers have been in poor health and weren’t able to be there, and they were missed, as were their wives.
We hope Haston Whitaker and his wife, Merle and Eolia Caudill, Arnold Whitaker and his wife are all feeling better and know that they were in the prayers of those at church.
Claude Caudill’s daughter, Diana, came in from Ohio to attend the church in memory of her dad. She stayed with Ailene Blair while here and got to see some family and friends, too.
Recently, Mark, Holly, Jacob and Cooper Hatton camped out at Levi Jackson State Park in London. They like their camper and spend a lot of weekends out and about.
It’s good to see a young family who enjoys being out and spending time together in nature. That’s what young folks need. It gives them time away from the television and computers and everyday life.
Last Saturday morning, Bob, Hunter and I took Rodney and Geraldine Ison on a ride in our Ranger. We went up through Rodney’s cow pasture to the top of the hill, then around the top of Johnson Fork and Spring Branch, coming out up on Spring Branch. We stopped and said hello to Toby and Colleen Breeding. Their daughter June and her husband were working on some cut trees.
Jerry and Bonita Adams and Noah Campbell spent the weekend in Lexington at William and Lyndci Gilliam’s home. They worked in the yard and garden, shopped, and played with baby Sadie.
Lyndci’s friend, Jocelyn, and her husband Dennis have a new baby, born a couple of weeks ago. Laramie and Sharon Adams are the grandparents, as are Darrell and Martha Watts.
Homer and Ruth Smith’s granddaughter Lisa, recently got married. I’m not sure who all attended besides Homer and Ruth, but congratulations to the couple.
Sorry to hear that former Jeremiah resident Wanda Caudill fell at her home in Pikeville and maybe broke her hip, and also had a heart attack. Her son Jeffrey lives beside her and watches out for her.
Sunday was the memorial for deceased members at the Little Ruby Church. The names were read, but only a small congregation attended. Maybe more will begin attend as time goes on.
The 15th annual John Calhoun Adams Memorial Service at Blair Branch will be held at the Williams Adams Cemetery in Stillhouse Branch May 26 at 6 p.m. with Pastor Ellis Adams. If it’s raining, it will be held at the Blair Branch Church. You may want to bring lawn chairs.
We would love to see everyone come and help us celebrate the memory of our loved ones. For more information or to send a donation, contact Arnetta Mae Slone of Jeremiah at 633-0594.
The kids are out of school, and I hope they all have a good summer.
