Donna Durst reports, "On Sunday, March 8, we had a Posey Baptist Church baby dedication for Joseph Warren Durst. We had most of our church family along with special guests Floyd and Martha Payton; Cecil and Makaya Rich; Chris and Jana Rich; Larry and Star Robertson from Kilgore; and Kyle, Amy and Cooper Kitchens from Oklahoma. Our preacher, Bro. Darryl Davis, performed a beautiful ceremony. Jim and Ellen Rich, Donna Durst, and proud parents Casey and Tiffany Durst read their special blessings for Joseph. J.R. Durst presented Joseph with his first little Bible which was a Bible J.R. received as a small child in 1960."
J.R. and Donna Durst spent Wednesday night in the “big city of Dallas.” It wasn't a pleasure trip though. They were at the Jack and Jane Hamilton Cardiovascular Hospital at Baylor. One of J.R.'s stints that's in the major artery of his heart was 95 percent blocked. He had another stints put next to the original one. Donna says, “He’s now proud owner of 5 stints in his heart. Thank goodness for God and doctors and the power of prayer.” Donna expresses, “Many thanks to Sherri Spradlin for going with J.R. and me to the hospital at three in the morning and to Kennith King for also being their bright and early to offer support.” Casey, Tiffany, Joseph, Amy and Kyle were also there to make sure their daddy made it through okay. The weekend before all this excitement, Donna and J.R. drove to Finley, Okla., and had dinner with Amy and her family. “Of course, we always enjoy the special times with these new grandsons. Can't seem to get enough of them!" says Donna.
