Randy and Cindy Gaylord spent an enjoyable four days last week in Millbrook, Ala., to visit with their daughter, Kimberly and two grandsons, Anderson and Tucker Malone. The weather was wonderful, with the dogwoods and azaleas bursting with color. It was hard to leave the 85-degree weather and come back to 30-degree weather in Northwest Tennessee.
I have no birthdays this week, but I do have one anniversary to report. Doyle and Winnie Sims are celebrating 65 years of marriage! Now, I don’t know if you know these people are not, but they are great neighbors to my husband and me. And you know what? Mr. Doyle told me not long ago that Mrs. Winnie is the love of his life, and she feels the same about him. They have been through many things together, and not a day goes by that they don’t tell each other how much they love and appreciate each other, either! And I want to say a very happy anniversary to them from the Sharon community and from my family! It says a lot when people are married over 50 years, and now they have reached 65! God bless you, Mr. Doyle and Mrs. Winnie, and may you have many more anniversaries together!
Remember that if you aren’t added to the community birthday and anniversary list, please email or call me with your information. I would love to complete it, but I can’t do it without you. So while you are reading this article, you could stop for one moment and give me a call with your family’s information.
Well, for today, that is “all the news that is news” from the Sharon community. Remember to continue to pray for the military, your neighbors, and that God will have mercy on our land!
