My sympathy to Judy Taylor on the loss of her daughter Ashlie Branham. She died on Sept. 18. I went to school with Judy and my heart goes out to her and all the family.
Virgil Combs of Carcassonne had to be put back in the hospital last week. He was not doing too well a few days before he was admitted, and then he got a staph infection in his bloodstream. He was doing some better on Saturday and was going to be sent to Pikeville to have a place on his nose checked. I hope he comes home soon. Blackey
My sympathy to the family of George Gibson of Tennessee. He died on Sept. 21 while he was visiting his daughter Erin in London. George was 42.
Brady Reynolds of Isom was in the hospital in Hazard from Saturday to Wednesday with a bad infection and pink eye. Then on Friday he was rushed to the University of Kentucky Hospital in Lexington. He is the baby boy of Adam and Mariana Reynolds. They found out Saturday that it was a viral infection and he has eye drops that already have taken the swelling down and may get to come home Sunday, which is good news. Brady’s grandmother, Helen Engle of Carcassonne, has been in the Hazard hospital also. She had surgery on Friday.
Vesta Walters of Blackey is home now. She had been in Letcher Manor Nursing Home for awhile. Her daughter Carrie Cornett said she was glad to be back home.
Happy birthday to Jack Johnson of Letcher. It was on Sept. 23. Kelly Hicks of Mayking had one the same day.
Mike and Karen Eldridge and their daughter Mallory Eldridge and Jamy Patterson and daughter Aubrey of Whitesburg went to Tennessee for the weekend. They went to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. I’m glad Karen is doing better. She was having problems with her blood pressure.
Jennifer and I took Kaleb to the carnival Friday night. It was not crowded so there was no waiting in line or having to park miles away and it was a cool night out. Kaleb had a good time.
