Don Shaw, son of the late Ernest and Ann (Horn) Shaw, passed away this morning (Friday). Arrangements are pending with West Oaks Funeral Home in Sulphur Springs. Please be in prayer for the family.
Chip and I ate and shopped in the Tyler area last Friday evening and spent the night at the Lake o’ the Woods Resort on Lake Palestine. The next day, we drove to Kountze, where our great-granddaughter, Dixie, was staying with her family, due to the flooding in Beaumont. We brought Dixie back to spend a few days with Landon, Laiken, Rylan, Brailon, and Slaiden, while her school was closed. On the way back we picked up Chip’s mother and sister, Grace and Linda Ellen Vaughn, and we all went to the Tira Community Center for Brailon’s “shark themed” birthday party at the Tira Community Center. Around 20 were there to help him celebrate! Guests were treated to pizza and cupcakes.
