Condolences to the family and friends of John Jordan after his recent passing. Mary Lynn Lambert shared that Brother David Howell made the following statement during his sermon at the funeral: “The world needs more people like John Jordan.” Mary Lynn added, “It is my belief that everyone who knew John wholeheartedly agrees. John was certainly an asset to the Silerton Fire Department and Piney Grove Baptist Church. He will be missed tremendously.”
Grady and Carolyn Stack recently joined Glenn and Robin for a camping trip at Pickwick. Mary Lynn Lambert shared some reflections she learned from the Stacks. “As young parents, Grady and Carolyn Stack spent a lot of their leisure time camping. Their two sons, David and Glenn, were not always as eager to spend their weekends camping. As they grew older, both purchased a camper. They now call and invite their parents to join them for a few days of camping; and Grady and Carolyn, like most parents, are appreciative of their thoughtfulness and enjoy spending time with their sons.”
Mary Lynn also brings us graduate news this week. “Steve and Linda (Hatch) Russell have three grandchildren who graduated recently. Clayton Dixon, son of Rodney and Lisa Dixon of Middleton, graduated from Jackson State Community College May 8. He will be attending the University of Tennessee at Martin in the fall to study Wildlife Biology. John Clifton Kirk, son of John and Melinda Kirk of Middleton, finished his studies at Tennessee Vocational School at Whiteville where he studied to become an auto and diesel technician. He will have his graduation ceremony in August. Ann (Stack) Hinson is proud of her grandson, Chandler Hinson. He graduated from Chester County High School. He is looking into entering a technical school this fall. Ali Ann Russell, daughter of Greg and Susanne Russell of Adamsville, will graduate Freed-Hardeman University May 15. She will continue her studies to become a pediatrician.”
With the weather turning nicer, I have noticed lots of folks are starting to grill out again and fish. Kevin smoked some hamburgers the other night that turned out delicious. Mary Lynn shared that Joey Lambert recently hosted his annual crawfish boil at his parents Larry and Anita’s house. She relayed that, “About 25 people enjoyed 75 pounds of crawfish piled on the table with potatoes, corn, sausage, and chunks of bologna. Mama Anita made her special dipping sauce. Guests brought various desserts.”
