Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well and looking forward to warm weather.

I’ve started going back to Senior Citizens again and I’m enjoying seeing all the people I haven’t seen in a long time. I’ve really missed seeing them.


I didn’t think I had time for it, but we need to make time for our friends. I was spending too much time alone.

A lot of people are still there and there are a lot that I will get to know. I sat with Lizzie Mae Wright and Bro. Rhuford Hart and his pretty wife Colleen, saw Jack Burkich and Janice Foster. I can’t call everyone’s name. There are too many, but I was glad to see all of you and find out what’s going on with you.

On March 9, my dad, the late Bill Howard, would have been 107 years old. He loved his birthday. We all made sure he had a great one. We still miss him so bad!

My son Astor and his wife Rosemary are visiting me and I’ve sure enjoyed them. I don’t get to see them as often as I’d like. A little thing like work gets in the way. But I’m glad of the good jobs.

My son Billy and wife Sandra came over and we all went to Pine Mountain Grill and saw a lot of old friends there and had some good food and enjoyed all of it. My son Larry Hatton came down and we all had a good visit and then them all left, but it had been a great weekend. My sons always enjoy being together, especially with me also.

I’m glad my grandson Dr. Jonathan Hatton is working at Mountain Comprehensive Health Corporation now. He completed his residency at Pikeville Medical Center. I’m glad he decided to come here. All his family and most of his friends are here. I’m so proud of him and all my family. I don’t like to brag, but I do. It’s what mothers and grandmothers do.

I’m sorry I had to miss the program our young people had at church. I was sick. I heard it went well and I’m sure it had a good crowd.

We still have so many people sick. I think the warm weather we are promised will help.

I’m glad my nephew Zack Day is out of the hospital and feeling better. He has been real sick in a Lexington hospital.

I hope Betty Asher and her family are doing well in Indiana. I haven’t heard from her in a while. I saw her picture and started thinking about her.

I have missed church while I wasn’t feeling well, but I’m glad to be going back and seeing everyone and find out how they are all doing.

I’ve not been out much with all the rain. I’ve not seen or talked to anyone much, so I haven’t got much to write about. So I am being boring.

I hope all the sick are feeling better.

May God bless all of you. Try to be in church somewhere if you are able. I’ll sure be glad to get back to mine.
