Hope all had a wonderful Mother’s Day and are thankful to be alive for another year. Makes us appreciate the wonderful mothers who have gone on before. They set a good example for us and are missed very much.

They are still needing volunteers to Weed-eat the Obie Fields Cemetery. (Bring your own Weed-eater.) If anyone wants to help, be at the cemetery May 19 at 11 a.m. Thanks.

Most of us are unable to do it, so we would appreciate some young, healthy people.

Nila Turner died a year ago, May 19, and she is still missed by all who knew her.

Pat Large has a birthday May 20. Hope she and Charles have a good day together. Happy birthday, Pat, and we love you.

My brother- i n – l aw, Philmore Fields, died a year ago May 22. He is still missed by all his family.

Kylee Faith Gibson will be one year old on May 24. She is the great-granddaughter of Archie and Margaret Fields of Cowan, and Sylvania and Allen Whitaker.

Emma Day Adams has a birthday on May 25. Want to wish her a very happy birthday. I will catch up with her in November. We will be ’39 and holding.’ Ha! I wish!

Irene Day is still not doing very well. Keep her in your prayers.

Pray for the William King family. He died last Saturday night from cancer. He lived at Isom, and was married to Patricia Polly King and had three children, Peggy King Caudill, Ellen King and William King.

The late Guy Stewart’s mother died also from cancer. Remember the family. Her name was Eunice Hall.

Lorraine was real good about taking care of her. Pray that God will give her plenty of strength. The funeral was on Monday, May 14.

Went to a great gospel singing the other night. Everyone was friendly and invited us back. The Combs Family was there, and I always enjoy hearing them. Nothing better than good gospel music and good preaching. We also got invited to two other churches while there.

Enjoyed seeing Alma and Lester Tindall, Bonnie Frazier, Evelyn and Glenn Webb, Shirley and Charles Day and Joanne and Leroy Fields. Always good seeing them, whether at church or a funeral.

We also saw Debbie Eldridge and her daughter Candy and granddaughters, and Debbie’s mom, Audrey Sumpter. The building was full. The pastor, Lester Boggs, was at Ft. Knox with my husband a few years ago. It was good for them to see each other.

They were both in Germany at the same time, about 60 miles from each other. Now they both live in Letcher County.

What a journey it has been. Of course, Lester is from here.

Hopefully all have a good week. Until next time, pray for one another, be good to yourself and one another, and attend the church of your choice.
