My sympathy to the family of Ollie James Back of Elk Creek. He died at Whitesburg Appalachian Regional Hospital on June 10. I’m gonna miss seeing him sitting on his porch when I go out. Ollie was 86.
We had family come in from Indiana on Saturday. It was my dad’s late brother Murphy Blair’s son Robert Blair, his sister Christine Lannin, her daughter Kellie and a friend Ry. We had a dinner here at my home on Sunday. They are staying about a week with us.
