Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well.
How about this pretty weather? I love it. So maybe we are going to get some more. I still remember the big snow in April and the Easter Sunday when the children had to hunt Easter eggs in snowsuits, but they still had a good time.
Last week started out real well. I love company. My brother Hubert Howard and wife Joyce came on Tuesday and my sister Betty Tyree came on Wednesday and we enjoyed it so much. She doesn’t get to get out much.
Her husband Bertus is in rehab in Letcher Manor. He’s having trouble with his legs. He will get good care and good treatment there. We all appreciate that place so much. They sure were good to my late husband Clyde and he loved it there. It’s good to have it here close to home.
It was so good my son Billy came for a visit. He has so much to do, but I think he’s got a lot to do and he likes to keep busy. We enjoy our time together. I tell my four sons we all grew up together.
I still have my son Larry and wife Linda living next door and I’m sure thankful. I see them every day and I don’t know what I would do without them. I really appreciate all my family. They are all so good to me.
I heard Dorthy Tacket’s daughter Jeanette Yonts had a birthday. Happy late birthday, Jeanette. I won’t tell how old you are. You are still very young.
I was so pleased to get a card from our cousin, Ruby Howard, in Indiana. She had health problems and it’s not as bad as we all feared. She has some, but we are all hoping it will get better. We all love Ruby and my two sons who she was so good to while they were away from home.
I was so pleased to get a call from Alberta Barker. She is a special person. She’s been good to my family and everyone else. We are all in the Hatton family and I hope we have the Hatton reunion this year at Cowan Community Center. She sure works hard for it and also her husband Jerry.
So many of the family are not in good health. They come from everywhere. I’m really looking forward to it and I sure enjoy Alberta’s calls.
I went to Food City the other day, mostly to see the people. I stay home a lot. There are always people you know and the store is so pretty and they have about everything.
My son Rob is so excited about Easter. He’s been getting ready. His grandchildren are coming for Easter and it wouldn’t surprise me if he had the grandchildren hide the eggs and he hunted them. He really gets into it. He is a good grandfather. He has four and they all live in Lexington and he lives in Owensboro, but he gets to spend all the time he can with them. They are all busy with their activities and school.
Rose Ballard, seems like you are doing better. I’ve been meaning to call you or write. I don’t know what goes with the time. I don’t get anything done. I’m just tired all the time or is it just lazy. You take care of yourself.
I’d like to say hello to Vickie Underwood in Ohio. I hope to see her this summer. She came to visit me last year and I was out for a short time and barely missed her. I didn’t know she was coming. She better let me know next time.
I hope if we get to have the Hatton reunion I can see her. She has never missed. She left here when she was real young. She still has family here and comes as often as she can.
I hope Glenora Eldridge is doing well and I hope someday to meet her. I know the story of her life and it’s a lot like mine. I love getting letters from her.
Our church had a pastor appreciation and a dinner for our pastor, Bro. John Conn, and it went real good. I think he has been pastor for 21 years and he keeps busy. He goes everywhere to visit the sick and helps all he can. We appreciate him. He’s also our friend.
Thank you, Rose Ballard, for the pretty card you sent me. I really appreciate it.
I know I don’t do enough for others. I love people, but I don’t seem to get around to doing things.
A big hello to Dorthy Tacket and her daughter Jeanette and Linda Hall and Bertha (Page) Dye and Elzie Ray Hatton and wife Irene.
My God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere if you are able.
