On Tuesday, our class delivered a "snack basket" to Robert Singleton. As you
know, he is spending all of his time there with his dear wife, Barbara, at St.
Francis Nursing Facility..
We didn't know his likes, however, we must have hit the nail on the head, as he
called Candy to let her know how much he appreciated it. It also had a NASCAR
magazine in it, which we all know is his second love.

After making a phone call out of the blue, I am sorry to report that our
classmate Virginia Craddock Kerr passed away in Texas, on January 16, 2008.
I spoke to her son, Robbie, and he said that she donated her body to Science and
she requested no service. I told him that it was the custom of our class to
send a memorial to St. Jude Hospital, if that was agreeable with him. He
thanked me and said that would be nice.

I have just left St. Francis Nursing Home after delivering a
picture to Barbara McBee Singleton and Robert. She is in room 212, and not
doing well. Hospice has been called in to help the family out.
Robert goes home around 4 o'clock when one of his children come, and then comes
back for the night. Barbara is in a great deal of pain, which they are trying
to control. If you are in the area, please stop by to speak to Robert, I'm
sure it would help pass the time for him.

An interesting note,, I got as email!
Easter is early this year.
Easter is always the 1st Sunday after the 1st full moon after the Spring Equinox (which is March 20).
This dating of Easter is based on the lunar calendar that Hebrew people used to identify passover,
which is why it moves around on our Roman calendar.
Based on the above information, Easter can actually be one day earlier (March 22); that is rare.
Here's the interesting information.
This year is the earliest Easter any of us will ever see the rest of our lives!
And only the most elderly of our population have ever seen it this early (95 years old or above).
And none of us have ever, or will ever, see it a day earlier! Here's the facts:
1) The next time Easter will be this early (March 23) will be the year 2228 (220 years from now).
The last time it was this early was 1913 (so if you're 95 or older, you are the only ones that were around for that!).
2) The next time it will be a day earlier, March 22, will be in the year 2285 (277 years from now).
The last time it was on March 22 was 1818. So, no one alive today has or will ever see it any earlier than this year!

Went to visit Barbara McBee Singleton last week.
She had had a bad night, and when Robert got there she was
not responsive. She had had what everyone else in Memphis
had had and they had given her medication which made her
sleep. She gave Robert and the children a scare, however,
by the time I arrived she seemed to know that I was there, and
everyone was feeling better about her.
Please keep Barbara and Robert in your prayers..

The January eat-out was a great success on such a cold night. It was also a
family affair. There were 28 in attendance, including Bill and Lou Goodwin's
daughter, Seneca, Nancy and Dan Goodwin's grandson, Steven, and our classmate
from Texas, Rena Mason Brookshier, who brought her sister, Shirley Smith and
her daughter, Debora Skelton with her.
Before the dinner, I checked in with Robert and Barbara Singleton. Barbara is
still holding her own, but Robert asked that we continue to pray for them.

News from Mary Nell,
Just to let everyone know I'm going to be a Great-grandmother again in Aug.!
Stephen & Lexie (Doug & Sharon's son) gave us the news New Years day & we couldn't
tell anyone until Mon. when they went to the Dr. I thought I would bust.
Ashley (Mike & Joyce's daughter) had the first one in Oct., a little boy.
Ashley & Stephen were born 2 weeks apart. We were really blessed to have 2
Grandchildren 2 weeks apart & to have a girl & a boy. I was 50 years when they
were born & now Doug will be 50 when his 1st Grandchild will be born.
I'm sure he would like for it to be a girl as they so wanted a little girl but
they will be soooo glad to have a healthy one no matter which sex.
"Mac" would be so proud as he so loved Ashley & Stephen. I'm sorry he didn't
live to see the others. Three were born after his death.
I guess that's why the Lord left me here on this earth.
God bless,
Mary Nell

You remember he had to leave our reunion early because he wasn't feeling good, well

Medical Procedure
On last Thurs, a.m. I returned to Memphis from Myrtle Beach, interupting a work
vacation, following my R. leg & foot being ice cold once again, when I woke up on Wednesday . I saw my
Doc Friday in the ER and yesterday, and he has scheduled me for another arteriogram,
at 11 a.m. tomorrow, (Wed) to determine the extent of blockage, and immediately
perform another frozen balloon-blood plak procedure. The concept being to insert a
balloon into the R. Leg artery, inflate and freeze it along with the plak on the
wall of the artery, in the area of increased blockage. Upon removal, hopefully
the blood plak then becomes soluable and is eaten or asorbed by the tissue. This
will be the 2nd of this type and 5th overall procedures since Feb 20th. Total
time for both procedures about 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hrs. plus a following observation
period . Although the procedure has been refined to a relatively simple one,
except for the doc manipulating the catheter and wires so as not to puncture the
artery, it still carries a number of risks, including death. I am not fearful
of the procedure or death, because I know Him, Who is in charge, and I am claiming
God's victory in healing of my leg, whether by physical surgery or His Spirit's
healing power, which is also a physical result, but the most powerful of all.
Therefore pray with me and for doctor Fernandez and his team, and for me that
God will heal my leg, and use this time as a witness before the Doc, the operative
team and others to His mighty power, the same that He used to raise Jesus from
the grave. (Eph 1:19-20) I think we at times take God for granted, maybe somewhat
like in our own family relationships. God's power is so mighty toward us and in
us that He is 24-7 making us all He wants us to be in Jesus. (Eph 3:20 & Phil 1:6).
Thanks for your prayer and uplifting and your contuing walk in the Lord.
As for my small group, I'll see you next week.

More news 'bout Billie Jean from Denise

     Let me be the 1st to say, THANK YOU, LORD!!!! I know that all of the
     improvement Mama is experiencing is due to A LOT of prayer from family &
     friends. I would ask that everyone keep praying!!

     I was so excited when Mama called me yesterday and told me she was calling
     to brag. I asked her, "What did you do?" She told me she had been able to
     read the labels on her prescription bottles. I had to call everyone & walk
     through my office to let everyone know about it. My boss asked me, "How do
     you explain that?" My immediate response was, "That is the absolute power of prayer!!!!"
     My thanks & love to all,
     Denise Higdon
     (Jean's baby girl)
