Shirley prepared lunch for us; hamburgers, BBQ’d chicken, creamed potatoes, corn on the cobb, green beans, peas, and rolls with lemon cake and red velvet cake for dessert. It was very good!
Then we rode to the funeral with James and Shirley and Angela Shirley. It was a very nice funeral. Two of Mrs. White’s nephews sang, her grandsons were the pallbearers and the Reverend C.H. Newcomb conducted the service.
Hailey and James Michael Mattox were going home Saturday night, and got hit by deer! It didn’t’ hurt either of them but the door on the driver’s side won’t open and the headlights are just hanging. It had to be more than one deer! They had planned to go to the funeral but because of the accident, they couldn’t.
Monday morning Nancy had to begin Jury Duty in New Albany.
Brother Louie was rested up, I guess, and gave us a really good sermon Sunday morning. His text was Luke 5:22-23, with help from Hebrews, Mark, Matthew and I Peter 4:22. We all have issues but the greatest issue of mankind is sin! And Jesus is the answer!
Linda Swearingen did a beautiful job singing the Special. Praise Group with Stephen’s solo was good too! Stephen filled in for Terry who was at the breakfast in the Family Life Center for the graduates and their parents. Carrie Foley was one of the graduates.
