 Decoration Day at Denning Cemetery will take place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. this Saturday, May 18. Hamburgers and hotdogs with condiments will be provided.  Instruments are encouraged and please bring lawn chairs as well.

    David and Pam Grimes and Justin Green visited their mother Carolyn Green over the weekend for Mother's Day.

    My visitors for Mother's Day yesterday were Johnnie and Ronda Austin, Tyler and Briley Austin with their children Journey and Jaymeson, Chris Crow, Mandie Treat, and Lynda Treat.

     Yesterday, I accidentally fell in my living room while we had company. It took some time to get me back up off the floor. Luckily nothing was broken, but I am very sore today.

    My daughters and I purchased some flowers for Decoration Day today. The facility was nice enough to bring out a wheelchair for me so I could pick out what I wanted.  

    Since I have been going down to the Claude Parish Cancer Center, I have learned that several of the ladies from the Bear Creek Baptist Church have been making little pillows to place on your seat belt to protect the port in your chest area. They also make little turbans for those who have lost their hair. The other day they gave me a little crocheted lap quilt to cover up with while receiving chemotherapy. I want to commend those ladies who make these items for cancer patients.

    Last Saturday my grandson Matt Crow, Jennifer, and Lucas Crow visited for awhile.

    Joe and Rhonda Pemberton brought Happy Mother's Day balloons to me and Lynda. They are so thoughtful and are wonderful neighbors.

    Last Thursday, Chris Crow came over and fixed a Chinese dish for us and we contributed a raisin pie for dessert. That evening, my son Alex and Roselea Crow brought me a strawberry pie for Mother's Day. It was delicious.

    I visited over the phone last week with Tommie Henley. Her daughter and grandson lives with her now since the death of her husband Kenneth Henley. We sure miss her at church.

    Steve Eames talked to his relatives Ronnie Hodge, Nelda Fiveash, and Francis Young. They all said to tell everyone hello.

    Sue Wilson spent Sunday and Monday nights at Washington Regional Hospital in Fayetteville. She had one stint put in her heart and the doctor said her heart was strong and had no other blockage.

    Tina and Bryden came up to spend the week with Tina's mom, Nancy Sharp.

    The Green Forest senior girls soccer team won their first game of the State Tournament held in Harrison. Unfortunately, they lost their second game. Their coach Ashley Wilson was voted Coach of the Year in the 3A conference. Attending the two games were Ashley's parents, Donnie and Eva Wilson, her brother Justin, Shawna, Faith and Colton Wilson, and her Aunt Nancy Sharp.

    “When everything seems to working out excellently, you've obviously overlooked something.”
