We want to extend our sympathy to the family of Stanley Dickey. His wife is
William Dodd’s sister, June. Joyce mentioned that he lived in the “Freeman Parish house when he was young.” He passed away on Monday, April 13. A private family graveside service, under the directions of West Oaks Funeral Home, was scheduled for Thursday, April 16. Please remember the family in prayer.
We had a blessed Easter weekend. We enjoyed church online on Sunday morning and evening. Our grandson and granddaughter-in-law, Landon and Laiken Joslin, and their boys, Rylan, Brailon and Slaiden came on Sunday afternoon. Laiken’s brother, Kasen, came, too. We were so glad to see them all! They didn’t come in the house, but we enjoyed visiting and watching the kids hunt Easter eggs — from a distance. Our grandson, Kenden Joslin, and his girlfriend, Emma Hall, stopped by and visited us in the yard later that evening.
I didn’t receive any reports of Easter activities, but I’m sure others celebrated in their homes and yards. Yvonne Weir did mention that she went to the drive in service at her church and I talked to others who participated in online services from home. I hope to have more to report next week.
