Just a quick few things this week. This time of year a person just gets too busy to sit down and write.
May is here and has started out with lots of rain. This week we are supposed to get rain every day. Lots of areas, close by, had flooding over the weekend.
Bob and the other grandchildren of George M. and Sally Adams lost a first cousin last week. Deanna Fay Howard Brown died in Troy, Ohio. She was a daughter of the late Reed and Martha Adams Howard and was the niece of Bill and Luther Adams and Danola Adams Bell.
She was born on Carbon Glow in the coal camps and later her family moved to Ohio. She was preceded in death by her sister, Donna, and leaves her husband Jim, children and grandchildren and others to mourn her passing.
We plan on going to her memorial later this week.
Also, Hubert Hall, of Sandlick, died last week at the age of 88. He was well known and loved throughout the area and had been missed during his sickness, and the area has lost a wonderful friend and supporter.
Hubert was a dedicated man to his family, business, many organizations and churches. Deepest condolences to Joan, Janet and Hubert Jr. and their families, all of his kinfolks and friends.
Chester and Odella Blair have been in visiting and have been entertaining some cousins from out of state. Stella Elam, Richard and Libby Smith also met with the girls and took them to various family cemeteries and interesting spots. They enjoyed their time in Letcher County.
Anita Caudill, of Letcher Manor, is happy to report she has had the cast taken off her leg and she enjoys seeing family and friends who drop by the nursing home.
Don’t forget the antique sale at Calvary College this Saturday sponsored by Gwen’s Country Attic.
