“Let us walk honestly, as in the day, not in rioting and drunkeness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying,” Romans 13:13.

Monday, Gary and I went to the Hicks Cemetery at Theodosia for my aunt, Freda Clayton’s funeral. Seen relatives I hadn’t seen for years. Met one of Freda’s cousins, which I forgot her name, sorry. Freda was always happy when one of her lost relatives found her and shared family history.

Besides Freda loving her flowers, she was a good cook. I know one nephew and family came down from Mansfield area for one of her good breakfasts. With three ingredients she could make the best biscuits. Her funeral was small, but I am sure if more people had known about it they would have been there.

Floyd and Lottie Clayton were there. They told me their son, Jess, had fell at Easter and broke his back. He is still recovering from that.

My cousin, Joe Brown, in Mapleton, Oregon went through chemotherapy. After that he got pneumonia, different than most. It took the doctor’s a while to figure out what kind it was. Joe got to come home from the hospital Monday, the 19th. Pray for him and wife, Janet.

Thursday Gary and I went to Theodosia area and visited with Uncle Rayford Clayton and later Vic and Jean Plante.
