Dear Friend Re­set­tles In Mis­souri

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - COMMUNITY - MARIE ROY WCN Columnist

If ev­ery­thing goes as planned, by the time we read this, our dear friend Cathy Wise­man will be set­tled in with her mother, in Mis­souri. We al­ready miss her, but we wish the best for her as she is one who de­serves the best, a friend to all, and ev­ery one who knows her, loves her. Her mother has promised a visit with us once in a while.

Re­cently, Gary Davis vis­ited the Sugar Hill Church and brought the morn­ing mes­sage in the ab­sence of Pas­tor Rick Reed, who was ill. Gary had vis­ited be­fore as a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Gideons. His daugh­ter, Kelly Turner, was also present, and she gave an in­ter­est­ing re­port on her fam­ily his­tory of at­tend­ing this church. Her great-great-grand­par­ents, Mr. and Mrs. Mon­roe Thomas, had been mem­bers years ago, also great-grand­par­ent Lucy Davis. Her grand­par­ents, Ken­neth and Sharon Davis have been for years, and still attend.

Kelly’s grand­par­ents, Ken­neth and Sharon, were mar­ried in the church, as were her par­ents, Gary and Sharon Davis, and her brother and his wife, Ja­son and Michelle Davis.

The Sugar Hill build­ing was one of many that dot­ted the area un­til con­sol­i­da­tion. It fell into a sad state of ne­glect, un­til some in­ter­ested men, Mr. Ris­ley, Mr. Thomas, Mr. Ten­nant and oth­ers, took on the job of re­pair­ing it, and church ser­vices were again held, and are still go­ing strong. Ev­ery­one is wel­come for Sun­day School at 10 a.m. fol­lowed by the morn­ing ser­vice.

Happy birth­day to Ken­neth My­ers, Lawrence Bowden, Harold Leo Reed, John Latta, Jeanie Wood­ward, Jack Pa­trick, Ja­son Moor­man, Bobby Braly, Melissa Lit­tle.

Happy an­niver­sary to James and Wilma My­ers, Ken­neth and Sharon Davis, John and Linda Mun­yon, Josh and Ken­dra Moore.

Happy years, all!
