We had a good memorial service at Blair Branch Church with many attending. Also, a large crowd stayed for “dinner on the ground” as it used to be called.
Hope Gillis Reedy, Dennis Ison, Terry Caudill and others who haven’t been feeling well will be better this week, and that Robin Jolly Blair is recuperating well after her recent car accident.
I think she had cuts to her face and a broken hip, which required surgery. Lana Pridemore and Amber went to Lexington to visit her and saw our daughter, Jessie Scott, when they went by Fayette Mall.
Jessie said she had also recently seen Loretta Mays Arthur Smith, formerly of Whitesburg.
Hope Allen Back didn’t get hurt too badly recently, while working in the logwoods.
Sorry to hear that Doug Adams has been suffering with a bout of pneumonia. Hope he is feeling better.
Maxine Back Cornett died last Friday. She was well known and loved by so many. Her funeral was held at Cedar Grove Church this past Sunday.
Bill and Joyce Adams were well enough to attend church Saturday evening and Sunday. Glad they could make it.
We should all make plans to attend the Postal Service’s meeting at the Blackey Community Center on July 9 at 2:45 p.m. They are thinking about closing or cutting back the hours of the Jeremiah and Blackey Post Offices, and we should all be concerned about this and give our input.
Last Thursday, Bob, Mom (Coreen) and myself went to Brownstown, Ind., to attend Mom’s first cousin Aaron Ison’s funeral. Dick Adams went with Marty and Judy Lynn Adams, and Robert and Brenda Combs also went from here. Dock and Aaron had always been close cousins.
Rodney and Geraldine weren’t able to make the funeral, but Ronald, Tim and Mike Ison went to visitation on Wednesday evening.
Rodney and his sister, Polly, are the only two of the late Tinsley and Cindy Smith Ison family left. Our sympathy goes out to them and also “A’s” wife Edith Hampton Ison and their children and great-grandchildren.
Mom’s sister Juanita Mccrarey had to spend a few nights in the hospital in Somerset. We hope to go check on her soon.
That’s all for now. Sorry to forget far too much news.
