Tomorrow is the day we pause and celebrate our freedom and thank the many past and present veterans on a day called Veteran’s Day. I try to make a trip to the Reilly Springs Cemetery some time around Veteran’s Day just to reflect on the great sacrifices that have been made, and I’m always drawn to two special gravesites.
I visited with a large group of the Attlesey family and friends Friday at the funeral service for Luther McCullough at the Old Reilly Springs Methodist Church. Luther had lived a long and useful life and there was certainly reason to celebrate. Sympathy is extended to Terry and Leslie and Vickie and Bill, and the entire family.
The Reilly Springs Community is celebrating the 2 to 2.5 inches of rain that fell in our portion of the county on Monday morning. “We really didn’t need the lightning and storms, but rain was awfully nice.” said one of our residents. “I haven’t heard of anyone having any major damages, but the thunder and lightning was quite severe as the storm moved through our community.”
