Mike Fields marks 38th birthday

Big Cowan

Aug. 18, my childhood friend and neighbor, Lorene Dollarhide, was killed in Perry County on her way to work in Florence.

Our sympathy goes out to her children, Ellen Renee Fletcher and husband David of Loveland, Oh., Sarah Jean Fields and husband Steve of Cincinnati, Oh., and Millard Fields and wife Tauna of Cape Coral, Fla.; a grandson, David Wayne Fletcher Jr.; two sisters, Linda Sexton and husband Brack of Cowan, and Velda Fraley and husband Elmer of Michigan; a brother, Gillis Dollarhide of Cowan; and a special friend, Terry Church, also of Cowan.

Funeral services were Thursday and Friday evening at Letcher Funeral Home with Shane Sturgill officiating, and the funeral was on Saturday at 1 p.m. with Dock Frazier officiating. Burial will be at a later date.

Our sympathy goes out to all.

I ran into several people at the visitation. Shane Sturgill is the son of Roy Sturgill and the grandson of the late Courtney Sturgill. He is a nice looking young man and presented a real good service, and read Scripture to comfort the family in their time of mourning.

Aug. 26 was my son Mike’s 38th birthday. It’s hard to believe he is that old already.

Mom and Dad love you and hope you had a great day. We still owe you a steak dinner.

My husband is getting settled in a little bit more with his retirement, but still drives me crazy. Ha! Ha!

My aunt, Irene Day, brought me out another mess of green beans. Probably the last of the summer. They sure have been good.

I have had bouts of vertigo (dizziness) about all summer and have not been out visiting people very much. If anyone has ever had vertigo, they know what I am talking about. I don’t even drive much anymore because of it.

Oh well. Some things we just have to live with.

Shelby Bockover in Greensburg, Ind., is still having a rough time after losing her husband, Bobby. Keep her in your prayers.

Prayer requests this week are: Irene and Eugene Day, Archie Fields, Mary Lou Fields, and Marty Smith’s mother, all of Cowan; Audrey and Charles Hammonds, Agnes and Bill Maggard, and Lucille Collins Fields, all of Indiana; and the Polly family, and Cathy Wolfe, of Craft’s Colly.

Be good to one another this week, attend the church of your choice and call someone and tell them you are thinking about them.

In Proverbs 17:22, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”

Let’s all keep a merry spirit and treat each other with kindness because life is too short and death knows no age.

Until next time, may God bless you.
