I stopped in at the Fairway Inn to visit with D.J. Wilhoite Saturday evening and had the pleasure of meeting some of the Brown family from Florida who were in for a reunion. D.J. told them that I wrote the Florence news and they were tickled to think they might be in the paper. Their ride was waiting for them so I didn't get much information except they were Shannon Brown, Deborah and Shirley of the Clarence Brown family. (Janice Ramsey, Jack and Darrell Brown, etc.) They named Skip and Lolita Bolden and Donna Brady since they were in the Florence area. I may have more information next week.
The Florence Church of Christ had a really good and tasty dinner Sunday. It was good to see Frances Pike back after her shoulder surgery. She is still recovering from that. Paul Ballard also came with Sharon for dinner as he just came home from a long stay at Swiss Villa. He is doing well. Ken and Sylvia Byars brought her dad, Harold Sims, from Swiss Villa. Bonnie Duckworth's mom and dad, Verle and Genevieve Truitt, also visited for dinner. Everyone had a good time.
I had a nice phone visit with Lura Smith last week. Janet Brown told us Lura's great-grandson had an appendix problem and we send out prayers for him.

Mom and Randy went to the American Legion Saturday to help in the celebration for Dutchie Scholl's and Mary Jo Meyer's birthdays and Paul and Sharon Schmitt's anniversary. The food was great as usual and lots of friends were there. Keith Brown from Washington and Janice Ramsey visited Margaret Lee Sunday.
