There is no way anyone can take Mrs. Hastings' place writing the Catalpa News, but I will try to keep Catalpa remembered in Marshall County and keep us on the map.
What about the weather we had last week? It was cold! Lots of pipes were frozen and it was hard on the animals. This week has been nice, but wet.
A large crowd attended the memorial service for Mrs. Cloyce Young Saturday at the Ostella Church of Christ. She will be remembered as a lovely, friendly, sweet person, and will be greatly missed by the community and family. Her obituary was in the Jan. 13 edition of the Tribune.
Sympathy to her family, and to the Reavis family and the Hastings family also.
Get well wishes are sent to Angie Smith in Murfreesboro who spent some time in the hospital after suffering a brown recluse spider bite.
Thanks to all who sent cards and came to our 50th wedding anniversary celebration on Sunday, Dec. 27. We had a great turn out, with over 160 registered.
Happy late birthday to Gary Douglas on Jan. 4, and to Larry Smith on Jan. 20. Also belated birthday to April Smith, whose big day was the 14th.
Lord willing, I'll see you again next week.
