Wow, I am still tired! Butch and I were part of the Union Square trash pick-up crew on Saturday, which was very successful, just to have people throw more trash out the next day.
Butch and I picked up from Union Square Church on County Road 18 and 40 to Highway 231, County Road 23 and 109. We had fun and enjoyed the sunny day, but it was so discouraging to see people throwing their trash on the roadside for others to pick up or just don’t care.
I can imagine how their house is and their style of living. I would not want to be a part of their visitors and entertainment.
After we finished our route and were on our way home, we got the sad news of our neighbor and friend Mrs. Lee Hamilton passing away. Unaware of it, at the time we were passing by we saw more cars than usual in her yard. I said to Butch, “I hope everything is alright.” We blew our horn and continued driving.
We do apologize for blowing the horn at a time like that and did not acknowledge. However, blowing our horn is something we always do, saying hi to Mrs. Lee as we pass her home. She loved it, but she would tell me, “Ruby, I see and hear you blow your horn, but stop by and visit me sometime.”
I promised I would and never took the time. I feel very sad I made a promise that I did not keep. I was too busy. I say to everyone, “Don’t get too busy that you forget your promise.”
Our prayers and condolences go to the families of Mrs. Lee Hamilton and the Shaws. Butch and I love you, Michael Shaw.
Our prayers and condolences go to the Massengale and Mitchell families in the loss of Ms. Rosie L. Massengale, the daughter of Mrs. Eva Michell, who was the queen of Rockford.
Mrs. Mitchell was a beautiful clean lady who kept Rockford’s bank and post office clean, as well. At 97 years young when she passed away in 2017, she was still the cleanest lady in so many ways, and in sweet loving memories of Mrs. Eva Mitchell we honor her in this Women’s History Month of March.
Another sweet clean lady of Rockford who kept all the ladies smelling good with Avon was Mrs. Annise H. Brown who passed away in March 2014. We honor her in this Women’s History Month of March with sweet memories.
Mrs. Annise Brown sold Avon for more than 40 years and was awarded the Avon Presidential Miss Albee’s Award 23 times. Mrs. Annise is the late mother of Mrs. Hilda B. Tuck, who worked for the Department of Human Resources in Rockford for many years before her retirement. Mrs. Hilda was also the wife of late educator Mr. David Tuck. We honor Mrs. Hilda Tuck today during this Women’s History Month, a strong powerful woman who helped many children and fathers while employed with the Department of Human Resources of Coosa County.
Happy birthday to Lady Rochelle Smith, Ms. Janice McKinney, my nephews Stanley and Perry Hill, Ms. Dianne Rawl, and to all March babies.
We are still praying for our ill loved ones: Minister Roland Hazel and his wife, Sherry Hazel; Lady Mandy Hill; Mrs. Joyce Taylor; Minister Jerry and Christa Russell’s mother; Pastor Chris Hill’s mother; and others who are under the weather.
Ministers Roland and Jerry are truly blessing Rockford Church of God with their preaching and singing the last few Sundays. May God continue to use and bless them.
