I have now discovered I reach many people with this little article that I write. I received a call from Grand Prairie from a Mrs. Imogene King Phillips. She wanted to let me know a little about the Orphan Train.
She gave me a lot of information. She mentioned Addran (excuse the spelling) where some of the orphans had settled. She said this was out close to Sulphur Bluff.
I also received an e-mail from Bruce at the News-Telegram when he forwarded an article from October 2004. The article told of a reunion of the Orphan Train descendants. I want to thank Bruce for the information. It was very interesting. The article mentioned Nina Post, who just happens to be a friend. I will have to see Nina to see the mementos that she has from her father, an orphan from the train.
It has been a hard week for the family members of Joyce Jenkins and Darrell Hardy. Also, the Garner family has had it really hard with losing their mother in September and now their father, William Garner. May God be with you and yours during this time.
Garden time is here. Get those onions and seed potatoes in the ground by Feb. 14. My Dad truly believed in this. He would be out there in the mud, the cold, even snow to make sure they were in the ground by the 14th. They say snow even seasons your English peas.
We want to thank God for this rain we have had this week. Let’s hope the drought is over for a while. We have had almost an inch since Monday morning.
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and I want to thank KSST in recognizing “nice people” this week. I thank them for recognizing my friends, Brenda McKinzie and Judy Gilreath. Brenda is a teacher that goes the extra mile for her students.
The Brashear Baptist Church was a busy place this weekend. I know they are almost finished with their Family Life Building. Hope to hear that you are getting to use it real soon.
