Happy belated birthday to Jade Dearman who turned 21 on December 29.

Happy belated anniversaries to Floyd and Mary B. Todd, December 28 and to Jimmy and Dianne Simmons for December 23.

Our community was saddened by the death of Era Nix, a wonderful mother, and friend to everyone who came in contact with her. She was a gentle soul and worked into her 90s. She was 94 years old and she will be missed by all.

Mike Simmons was surprised with a birthday celebration, December 26th with a birthday celebration with his family and relatives at Malones Fish and Steak. Happy birthday. We wont mention your age.

Another birthday celebrated in December was Ken Davis. You thought I forgot! I hope you have many more!

Mary Todd had another blood clot and was rushed to Oxford for surgery. She is doing fine for a 93-year old. At the same time she was in the hospital, her daughter Mona Davis suffered a heart attack and was taken by ambulance to Oxford. We can report that both Mona and her mother Mary Todd are doing great. It seems Monas 100 percent blockage rerouted itself. Talk about a miracle. They are both home and recuperating.
