Happy birthday to two of our grandbabies, Kaydance and Kameran Tourangeau of Blackey. They will be four on Oct. 12. They are the children of Jessica Sparks and Justin Combs. The grandparents are Paula Sparks of Michigan and the late Jeff Sparks of Neon and Lee Roy and Diana Combs of Carcassonne. They had a Justin Bieber party at home.
Justin and Jess just found out they will be having a baby in May. We are all so excited. With the girls and our grandson Kaleb and the new baby, Lee Roy and I will have four precious grandbabies.
Congratulations to Bruce and Natasha Watts Parsons on the birth of their son. Finnegan Thomas K. Parsons was born on Wednesday, Oct. 5. He weighed 7 pounds and was 19 1/2 inches long. The grandparents are Theresa Watts Proffit and Oscar Proffit Jr. of Whitesburg, John and Lucy Holman of Pikeville, and Jay Parsons of Kodak, Tenn.
Virgil Combs of Carcassonne has been back in the hospital and has not been doing well. When he would eat or drink it was going into his lungs instead of his stomach. He was bleeding out and they were not sure from where, but as of Saturday he was able to eat a little and they stopped the bleeding, which is good new. Please say a prayer for him and his wife Freda and all the family.
