Hello, I hope this week has been a good one for all. There has been a lot going on.
I have talked with Debbie Butler and she was excited to share with me that as most people know, most of her family is not from here. She wanted to have a campout and cookout and just had a hard time finding the right time to plan it. Trying to gather a large family together this day and time is hard to do. But she set her date for Oct. 6, invited about 51 people and 26 showed came and nine stayed and camped out.
Debbie shared that the food was great. They had burgers, hot dogs, potato salad, pasta salad, Hawaiian pasta and apple salads, along with chips and cookies. Later in the evening, they roasted marshmallows.
Debbie said they also had good laughs and fun playing all sorts of games from kickball to football to corn hole, flash light tag and a scavenger hunt. She also wanted to thank everyone for coming and most of all God for the good family and great weather.
GATHERING. I also spoke with Judy Pawley, who shared with me that Oct. 14, the Pawley family had their yearly gathering in the White Mill Christian Life Center. There were about 25 to 30 who attended the event. Judy also wants to share that her and her brother-in-law, Elmer Pawley are the only two living out of the Pawley family. Mr. Pawley had a birthday last week, he is 94 years young and he also is in fairly good health. Judy also shared he now is at Grayson Manor in Leitchfield. They all had a wonderful time.
SYMPATHY. Our community has had the loss of two great people. Edith Dupin, who is survived by her husband Norman Dupin; two daughters, Netella and Robynn; one son, Jackie; two sisters, Julia Richardson and Velma Sarver; and a brother Lonnie Nugent. I know this is a loss to her family and friends. May God bless you all.
The other loss to us is Pat Owsley. When I heard of this loss, all I could think of was his dad, David Owsley. I can remember when he passed away. My dad was a man who had had a lot of sadness in life, but I don’t remember seeing very many tears in his eyes. He wasn’t a man of great words, but when Mr. Owsley died, when daddy spoke of this there were quivers in his voice and a tear in his eye. All daddy would say is he was a good man. These words I always will remember. Like father, like son, they both were good men. I know the family will miss him greatly, but just remember all the good times and they will give you comfort. To his wife, Ms. Linda, I remember you being our physical education teacher and how you always would smile just talking about him. Just keep thinking of all the sweetheart years and try to keep smiling and somehow that will help you when you need that little something. May God bless you. All my love and prayers are with you.
CONGRATULATIONS. I spoke with a dear friend of mine who had good news to share. On Oct. 6, Marvin Butterworth took his girlfriend to Dollywood, Tenn., and with a great surprise to all, when they came home it’s now Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Butterworth. I wish them both many happy days ahead. May God bless you both with happiness. Marvin has been and still is a good friend of mine. It’s good to know, even after the loss of a loved one, we can move on.
