Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year’s Day! As we look towards Valentine’s Day, I will share a poem. The beautiful thing about love is that it transcends life and death. I wrote this for my Aunt Dianne who passed away this month unexpectedly.
“Dianne” – “She was the one with a ready smile
Kind words like notes in pockets
Delivered Dianne style
The interested listener of all
No matter the content or story
She was apt to count her blessings
Not known to fear or worry
A traveler of places
Who took delight in new faces
Praised God for the landscapes
The sun and the rain
The friend always planning to visit again
She truly enjoyed each and every day
With the sort of enthusiasm
No one could deny
A waterer of flower gardens
Simply by passing by
She’s traveled home now
A longer pilgrimage this time
But her spirit sings on
A cheerful wind chime”
Condolences to the family of Sloan Buford. His body was laid to rest in the Silerton Baptist Church cemetery.  Sloan lived in Oxford, Miss. Sloan spent a lot of time in Silerton as a child growing up, and as he grew into adulthood, he always came back to Silerton to visit friends and relatives. He had requested that he be buried in the Silerton cemetery. A younger sister, Donna Nelle Buford, who died as a baby was the first body to be buried in the cemetery.
Frankie and Mary Lynn Lambert and Grady Stack traveled to Southhaven, Miss., to attend the funeral of Betty Jane Dawkins. She was a sister to Sloan Buford. He died 10 days after Betty died.
In fellowship news, Frankie and Mary Lynn Lambert entertained her siblings and their spouses at their home in Saulsbury. They enjoyed being together and enjoyed a delicious meal.
