As luck would have it, while driving east on Main Street recently, I witnessed the future of Auburn proudly walking from their fun time at the park, back to school. There were two groups, on different days. The first group were younger ones, but the next group consisted of older students, all of them well behaved. Eighth grade graduation is tonight at 6 p.m. in the Auburn School gym.
This has been a sad week at my house. Scott Crisp, a young friend of our family was accidentally electrocuted. Scott touched many lives. He was there when my grandson Cory Mayes first began his Native American dance competition, which he won. He was a teacher and mentor to many youngsters throughout there lives. He accompanied us to Albuquerque, NM the first time Cory danced at the Gathering of the Nations, in the “Pit” at UNM. He had never flown before and we had to “baby-sit” him all the way. He will be greatly missed, and several memorials have been planned as a celebration of his life.
Some of you may remember Linda Tate Stewart from years past in Auburn. She and Harold Tate Hanks are first cousins and Linda spent many summers of her growing up years in Auburn. Linda’s husband Hoye Stewart of Bowling Green left us on Memorial Day for a more peaceful, painfree place. Remember Linda and her family in your prayers.
Carroll Browning is home from the hospital trying to recover from infection following back surgery. If you see him out and about, wish him well, then remind him he’s not supposed to be out at all.
Jerry Rust is still courageously following doctor’s orders and taking his medicine, with ice cream no less. He was able to take part in two Memorial Day celebrations this weekend in cemeteries, one at Auburn and one at New Friendship.
My neighbor Deanne Allen is going through lots of tests and serious heart problems have been found.
I have two more outpatient test to go through, hopefully to find treatable conclusions to my own health problems.
Please keep the ill and infirm friends and neighbors in your thoughts and prayers. Have a blessed day.
