Union Square and Rockford Church of God send their condolences and prayers to the Hardman families in the loss of their father, brother and friend, Mr. Donald “Dino” Hardman.
Union Square also sends condolences to Mr. and Mrs. Carl Goggans and family in the loss of their baby grandson. We are saddened.
We pray for the families of Mr. James Kendrick, a special guy of Coosa County, especially Nixburg and Goodwater. The senior citizens of Goodwater loved him.
We pray for all bereaved families at this time.
Saturday, July 30, we celebrated a special lady’s birthday – Shelia (Reen) Daniel from Coosa County, who now lives in Alexander City, but still thinks she lives in Coosa County, Union Square (smile), and she does because she is always there visiting her mother, Mrs. Laverne Hannon, and son, Steve, who live in the Square.
Shelia (Reen) celebrated her seventy-fifth birthday with lots of fun, enjoying a warm calm evening at the Barclay’s lake (cabin) in Union Square with families and friends, along with good food served and prepared by her nephew and niece, Mr. and Mrs. C. Hannon, and he is the best chef of all times. They fried and grilled ribs, chicken, etc.; made homemade drinks; played great music for the old and young.
Families and friends came from Georgia and other places far away and of course local to help her celebrate those 75 years of hers. She said to me (“Tot,” she calls me), “We are getting old, but thank God we are still here.”
We laughed about growing up in the country, attending school together, being tomboys and climbing trees picking fruits, building houses in the treetops, and now we can’t put one foot up a tree.
Her mother has all these fruit trees, and I wanted some one day she was there. She said to me, “Tot, you know how we used to climb those trees. You better get up there and get you some figs.” That was so funny to both of us. It brought back good old memories of our younger days.
During some of those younger days many things happened. As we grew older we looked at young boys more, and wow, Reen fell in love with my brother Tommy (now deceased). They got married and had two boys. I still consider her my sister-in-law as of today, and I love my two nephews, Pat and Stevie Johnson.
If we keep living for the Lord one day we will climb trees forever and won’t worry about age and getting old.
We are wishing Reen many more blessed birthdays to come. The celebration was great, with much fun and happiness.
Happy birthday to my favorite great-nephew, Landon Lee Hill, on August 15.
Happy birthday again, D’Ollis Lee, tomorrow, August 13. (Sorry; I made a mistake last week on his date.)
Birthday wishes go to all August babies.
