Decoration Day was colorful Sunday at Unity. Many graves were still decorated regardless of the “C-Virus.” There were various shows of love in creative ways. The day was a mixture of smiles, air hugs and kisses and tears. Loved ones not forgotten as long as a name is spoken or written. Friends shared memories, so it was good. You can still send needed checks to Unity Cemetery Fund to help in the care of the cemetery. Send check marked for cemetery fund to Unity Cemetery Fund, PO Box 183, Jacks Creek, TN 38347.
May 21 – Wuhan China has banned the eating and almost all hunting of wild animals. If properly enforced, there is a potential to save countless lives. What is wrong with veggies without meat?
Thank you, Rachel, for requesting donkey email. It was nice talking to you later. Anyone can request these animal emails to be forwarded by calling 989-7485 or emailing
Bees are now recognized as citizens in Costa Rica in a suburb called Curridabat. The community will create green spaces, reforestation and bio-corridors all which help pollinators survive and humans thrive because of bees, hummers, butterflies and bats. Other countries are encouraged to commit to environmentalism and wildlife conservation. Have you noticed the few butterflies, bees and hummers in our flowers and gardens? We need them, and they need us. Plant more flowers (shade and sun) for them to pollinate for us. We can not make it without them. Gardens and farmers crops will be hit hard. Food will be in demand. God created every living thing on this earth. He had a purpose, so do not rock our planet. Praise Him and pray to Him. He is in control. He hears our every word.
