Trip to Flag Rock was spectacular

Hello! Hope everyone had a great week.

On Mother’s Day, my husband James, son Mike and friend Melinda, and myself rode over to Norton, Va., and ate at Taco Bell, then we rode up to Flag Rock Overlook. We took some pictures. The rock formations are just beautiful. There were some really huge rocks up there.

My Aunt Nova Lee Fields died May 9 at Whitesburg ARH. She was 69 years old and was the daughter of the late Walter and Eva Amburgey Sexton. She was the widow of Benton Fields. Surviving are three brothers, Delmus (Betty) Sexton of Florida, Lucky Sexton of Camp Branch, and Tracy (Tina) Sexton of Sandlick, and three sisters, Maggie Cook of Isom, Debbie (David) Slone of Cowan, and Carol (Jimmy) Johnson of South Carolina. Her funeral was at noon, Thursday, May 12, at Letcher Funeral Home with Bill Craft and Glen Potter with burial at Obie Fields Cemetery on Cowan.

She will be missed by many. When living in Indiana, she worked at Heritage House Nursing Home. She and Ben were very close friends of my husband James and me as well as being aunt and uncle. We were very close for a long time. She baby-sat my boys sometimes and she kept my hair colored blonde for a long time.

Later they moved back to Kentucky and I did not see them as often. After Ben died I only saw her about four or five times. She used to work at Letcher Manor and then her health got bad. She had heart problems and cancer. She had lots of friends in Indiana. Some have passed on and the others miss her. Our sympathy goes out to all her family.

Then Joe Pack Jr. died Friday, May 13. He was 60 years old and was the son of the late Joseph and Blanche Collins Pack. He is survived by his wife, Peggy Pease Pack; two sons, Kevin (Chenoa) Pack of Smoot Creek and Mike (Cecilia) Pack of Craft’s Colly; one sister, Cora (Don) Sturgill of Pert Creek; three brothers, Willard Frazier and Jimmy Brashears of Cowan and Jimmy Joe Chapman of Lexington; and five grandchildren, Houston, Marissa, Chloe, Scott, and Joseph.

Funeral services for Joe were Monday, May 14, at Letcher Funeral Home with Frank Adams, Cecil Howard, and Steven Peake with burial at Pease and Pack Cemetery at Craft’s Colly. He will be missed by all.

I went to the old Whitesburg Grade School, sixth, seventh and eighth grades, with Joe. He was a pretty good guy. I hadn’t seen him until I moved back down here. He was a Christian and a very faithful member of King’s Chapel Church and everyone will miss him. He was a blessing to the church.

Charles Large from Virginia had a birthday on Friday, May 13. Hope he had a great day despite the superstition. His wife Pat has a birthday on May 20. Happy birthday to both of you and miss seeing you.

Georgette Sims and husband Harry from Danville were at Irene and Eugene Day’s on Saturday before going to a class reunion or some kind of gathering. I saw them all out looking at the pretty flowers and bushes after the rain. Hopefully they all had a good time.

Stacy, Rick and Addie Sue Dobson are back from their visit in Indiana. Addie Sue had a real bad ear infection. I told Stacy Indiana does not agree with her healthwise. She had an ear infection the last time she went.

Well, everyone have a good week. Attend the church of your choice. Be good to each other. Pray for someone.

Until next time.
