Sunrise services set on Tipple Road

Just a small column this week since I’m writing at the last minute again.

Sorry I was mistaken about Easter sunrise services on Blair Branch. This year they will have services at the cemetery where Fred Adams is buried on Tipple Road. Services will be at 7:30 a.m.

So many hearts were saddened to learn of the death of Vina Banks Roark. She had touched many lives with her kindness, and during her years as a teacher, guidance counselor and Christian. This was evident by the large crowd that attended her funeral service. Jeremiah

Our deepest sympathy goes out to her mother Hattie Banks, her husband Jeff, children Andrew and Becky, and brother Bill, as well as others who loved Vina as family or friend.

A large crowd attended Blair Branch Church’s Union meeting last Sunday, and many stayed to have a delicious dinner afterward. We stopped by after Vina’s funeral to have dinner there.

Susie Adams Raglin continues to be very sick. Her family stays with her at the hospital most of the time.

The Letcher Area Homemakers got together last Tuesday for our April meeting. After the meeting we tacked a quilt and had lunch. Connie Blair made us a kettle of homemade soup, which we enjoyed.

Last Sunday, Coreen Pridemore and Bob Banks stopped by to visit Dorse and Gwen Fields. All enjoyed talking and visiting.

A fish fry was held at Ellis and Ila Adams’s home last week. Jerry and Liberty fried the fish that were caught by Toby Breeding when he and Colleen were in Florida.

Ben and Logan Caudill have been out hunting dryland fish mushrooms, and found enough to fry up for supper. Many others are out looking for them too, some to eat, and other gather them to sell.

I hope everyone has a happy Easter holiday, and can make it out to church Easter Sunday.
