I talked with Bonnie Phipps Sunday and she said she didn’t make it to church.

Tracy Lakey and her friend, Linda, came in Saturday to decorate the graves and they stopped and visited with Aunt Bonnie Phipps for three hours before leaving Ava.

I went to my O.E.S. Meeting last Monday, but on my way over there I stopped and visited with Marie Dickey in the nursing home.

I took my news and some eggs in last Tuesday and got me some milk before coming home.

I baked bread Wednesday to take up home Saturday for the get-together of the Simmons families dinner before we went to the Hopewell Cemetery to decorate the graves.

Thursday I went by the nursing home and saw Marie Dickey and Pauline Schauffler before I went over and got me some gas to mow my grass.

Friday was a busy day. I mowed my yard and up and down the road and does it ever look pretty, but I think I over did it because my legs told me so ever since. Then I went and got my flowers for decoration.

John Jr. and Kathy Goss came by and left their quilt block and then they were headed back to Warsaw where they have a place on the lake. They had come down to put flowers on John’s mother’s grave.

All you Blakey Families who have quilt blocks, please get them back to me by the end of June.

Remember to leave half inch all around the block to sew the blocks together.

Monica came up Saturday morning and we headed up home to eat and then decorate the graves at Hopewell Cemetery. Mollie and Dale McPheeters, Katie and Jimmie Moulder, Margaret Allen and daughter, Brenda Henslee and son, Rick Allen, his son, Austin and my brother, Keith, son of Mr. and Mrs. Scottie Simmons and two daughters, Jimmie’s brother and sister was there too.

That evening I was sitting outside with the two dogs and Chad Blakey and Mark Weston came by and Chad gave me my Mother’s Day gift. He wasn’t down for Mother’s Day.

Sunday after church I went down to Spring Creek Cemtery and put flowers on all the gaves and cut some grass away from some of the tombstones. While down there I met a couple from Springfield, their last name was Sell and they used to live here. I need to take my pencil and paper to write their name down. Then I went to Mt. Tabor and on to Arno Cemetery before coming on home.

James, Kristie and Lakota came that evening and picked up their two dogs and then Jo Stephens and I went over to the Ava Cemetery and looked around at the pretty flowers.

Lets keep our leaders and the men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training in our prayers.

Let’s keep our sick folks in our prayers.

My prayers and sympathy go out to all who have lost a loved one.
