Special Neighborhood Watch meeting
Union Square’s Neighborhood Watch meeting for the month of August was special. Mrs. Susan Rogers treated us with some assorted cupcakes, and they were good! We are still keeping Kenny’s spirit alive. He loved for us to have refreshments at our meetings, and he made sure that we always had food to eat.
Deputy Scott gave the Sheriff’s Office report and afterward said, “See something, say something.” He also introduced us to one of the newest reserve deputies, Shane Payton, who spoke kind words concerning his task. Assistant District Attorney Joe Ficquette gave us joy when he arrived at the meeting with his beautiful wife and mother-in-law. They graced the meeting with their sweet spirit of love.
Mr. Ficquette spoke on many important issues for Coosa County. He truly feels that he can make a difference to better Coosa and Clay counties, and it is obvious that he can be the man for the job.
Mr. David Tuck’s home-going was a perfect one. Deacon Joe Belyeu, who took Tuck’s seat for District 3 on the Board of Education, spoke highly on Mr. Tuck’s accomplishments and said it would be hard to fill his shoes. Tallapoosa County Commissioner T.C. Coley and Coosa County Commissioner Unzell Kelley were on one accord with great things to say about Mr. Tuck, including some things people were not aware of and that are very important for the future. Others who helped celebrate were Mt. Sinai Baptist Church’s great choir, Pastor Lathonia Wright, Minister David Benton, Deacon David Boleware, Sis. Beverly White of C.O.P.A.C.E., and Pastor Christopher Todd of New Home Missionary Baptist Church of Hissop, who was the speaker of the hour, preaching from Genesis 12:4. “Going for God” was the subject.
This young man of God preached a message with power and the anointed. The anointed was so heavy that Pastor Todd said, “Wow, I’m getting happy preaching,” and my spirit got happy. Wow, I felt it, too. Pastor Todd is an awesome young preacher. He preached this home-going like no other, and the people said “amen.”
Pastor Todd said Mr. Tuck was always going for God and now he went with God. We won’t say “goodbye.” We’ll just say, “See you later, Mr. David Tuck.”
Four-year-old Josiah Gray is a smart little fellow. He’s playing soccer and loving it. His grandmother Cynthia asked him to bring her a Kleenex. He said to her, “No, Granny, it’s not a Kleenex; it’s a tissue.”
Prayer list: Bro. Wayne Weeks, Ms. Lisa Willis and all young children.
Happy birthday to all August babies, and on August 10 to Chesley Days, LaJarrel Hill and Corey Shaw.
