Janice Cleek is still in the CCU at the Jackson-Madison County Hospital. They think she had a bad heart attack instead of a stroke.
My great-grandson, Gauge, and I enjoyed the annual fish fry held at New Home Baptist Church Saturday evening. It was great to see old friends and neighbors from the New Home community and people that I used to go to church with from my childhood and adult years through 1988. It was great to see the Bell children, Sue, Mike and Deborah and their spouses, and their mother, Justine Bell; also Nina Andrews and her children, Teresa and Cindy, Junior Howerton, William and Betty Newsom, Charles and Joyce Jones, Violet Harding, Brenda Fulcher Lynch, J. D. and Nelda McMillin, Kay Exum, Brenda Brawner, Susan Pollard, Janie Collier, Chuck and Barbara Collier and many more. This event started many years ago with J. D. McMillin having it at his home and it got too big for it to be held at his home, so New Home took over and has been doing it since then. It was a great time being with all of you.
Our birthdays for this week are: Mark Simpson, Janice Cleek, Matthew Fitzgerald, Vivian McCaleb, Joe Lofaro, Allie Baker and Danelle Fabianich. Happy birthday to all of you.
Until next week, may God bless.
