On Saturday, Feb. 1 many friends, family and neighbors gathered at the First Assembly of God church to reflect on the life of one of the great ladies of Carrabelle. Frances Reynolds Brinkley was laid to rest. She was a longtime, close friend of mine and will be missed a lot. Pray for Francesí eternal peace and strength and peace for her family.

When I got home from the funeral, there was a message on my machine that another longtime friend of mine and great guy had passed away. Pray for Charles Smithís eternal peace and for Carolynís strength and comfort at this time.

The door at Chillas Hall will open at 8 a.m. and close at 11 a.m. The gentlemen will prepare and serve pancakes, sausage, scrambled eggs, French toast, juice and coffee. All for a donation of $6. After you have enjoyed your breakfast, sashay over to the bake sale table and pick up something to top off your lunch. Yum! Yum!

Remember all meals, games and other fundraisers are open to everyone. I will note members only when the occasion arises.

Be kind to one another, check in on the sick and the housebound and remember, Jesus loves you.

Until next time, God bless America, our troops, and the poor, homeless and hungry.
