Hello everyone. Hope you are all doing well, and hope all you mothers had a great Mother’s Day.
I had a very good day, lots of pretty flowers from my granddaughter Wendy Day, and roses from Larry and Linda and Billy and Sandra. Thank you, Billy, for planting them. All the cards and phone calls, too.
Astor and Rob will be coming in later and we’ll have it all over again. That will be great! My sons are so good to me.
All of us Howard sisters got together to celebrate Louise Shepherd’s birthday: Kat, Betty, Louise and myself and Joyce Howard. We claim her as a sister also. We all had a good time. We get together when we can.
Charlie Hatton is a patient in Hazard Hospital. We hope he gets to come home soon. His wife Aggie is still in Letcher Manor for rehab.
They need everyone’s prayers, and also Brenda and Dexter Howard, Ruby Howard, our cousin Ken Howard, all of Indiana, and also Bill Maggard, formerly of Cowan.
So many people are sick.
I visited Aggie Hatton and Blanch Hatton in Letcher Manor the other day, and I had a great visit with Buggy Adams of Isom. We went to grade school together a few years ago — no, a lot of years ago — at Marlowe, so we had a lot to talk about.
She’s up there for rehab, and was doing better. We talked so much that they came in three times to pick up her lunch tray. She did more talking than eating, and I sure got mine in also. I sure enjoyed my visit.
I really enjoyed a call from Evadean Webb of Dry Fork. We hadn’t seen each other in a long time. She is a sister of my cousin Ruby Jean Howard in Ft. Wayne, Ind. We talked for a long time.
I love talking to my friends. Not to gossip, but talk about old times and brag about our children and the topic of food always seems to get in.
My son Astor and wife Rosemary had their family in for Mother’s Day, their son Michael Bevins and his wife and their baby. I’m sure they had a great time. It was a surprise visit.
Astor and Rosemary really like where they live now in Georgetown, but they miss Ashland and their home there. They hope someday to move back if they don’t change their minds. I think those two would be happy anywhere as long as they can be together.
Our sympathy goes out to Bennett Adams’s family in the death of his mother. I don’t know her name.
May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere this week if you are able.
