The Brashear Baptist Church had two trees dedicated to two fine men last weekend. L.D. White and Larry Vaughan were remembered with these trees and plaques last Sunday.
I apologize for not writing last week but we were camping with two of our grandsons. Fun was had by all at Daingerfield State Park. It has been a long time since I have seen two boys get so dirty. They truly had a lot of fun. We did, too, just watching them enjoy the outdoors. We were able to eat every meal outside. The bugs were not bad yet.
Pat Higginbotham called last week and wanted me to let everyone know how well her grandson, Tyler, is doing at the University of North Texas. He was honored for being in the top 10 percent of his class as a business major. She is the typical proud grandmother. Congratulations, Tyler, on a job well done.
I am in need of a house to rent, not for me, but for a friend of a friend. This person would like to stay in the Brashear area. If you are able to help them out, please give me a call. I am not sure how large a place they need. I do know there is a man and his 18-year-old son if that helps. You all know how good it makes you feel when you are able to help someone out.
Billie Rushin asked me last weekend at church when Homecoming was, so I called Pat George and found out. Homecoming 2012 is Saturday, June 2. Hope to see you there.
The Dinner Bell ministry at First United Methodist Church is still doing well. They are feeding approximately 80 people every Wednesday. If you know of someone who could use a good meal, let them know about the Dinner Bell being served at First United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall every Wednesday from noon to 1 p.m.
Hope Community Center is getting ready for their Saturday night service. Remember that it is located at 110 Glover St. in Sulphur Springs. Come and enjoy a meal at 6 p.m., with the service beginning at 6:15 p.m. and continuing until 7 p.m. This week there will be chicken pot pie and cookies for the meal. We would love to see you there for this new praise and worship service on Saturday, May 5 and May 19.
Wednesday night there is a new Grief Support Group beginning in the First United Methodist Church Administration Building. Call 903-885-2185. This new ministry is designed to help people recover from the loss of a loved one.
I hope no one feels that I have gotten away from news just about Brashear. I just want to let everyone know that there are a lot of missions and areas that can help others. Just look around — we have a very caring and giving county. Witness the outpouring of love last week for our own lost military personnel, Tanner Higgins. I was proud to be from this community that showed our love for Tanner and his family.
I want to send out a prayer for some rain. Our garden is doing well, but rain would really help.
Looks like there is a lot of hay being cut in our area. I do not remember when hay was cut this early before. Hope you are getting your hay cut real soon.
Tom visited with Randy Koon yesterday. It had been a long time since we had seen Randy around. It was good to see him.
Thanks to all of you for all you do to help others. May God bless you and yours and stay safe. Until next week, call me with any news at 903-612-8806, or e-mail me at youngdede60@ gmail.com or come on by our place on County Road 1119. We love company.
