I send my sympathy to the family of Thomas Maughon who passed away. He is survived by his wife Carol and two daughters and a son. They moved here in 1989 from Walton County. Jo Anne Bryant is in the hospital in Athens. I hope that she is better soon and back at home.

There will be a tournament at Sugar Creek on October 18. It is the CNR tournament. I was saddened last week. My best friend who was in ill health for several years passed away. She was in a personal care home for several years. She stayed out in the Madison Home. At one point, her youngest son carried her to South Carolina where he lived.
As her health declined, there was the need for more care, so she was moved to a nursing home. Beverly Sigman was there until her death. Her grave side service was last Thursday and she was buried at the Madison Cemetery where her husband, Dr. Cheney Sigman, was buried in 1986. Our friendship began in the early 1970’s.
My daughter had ridden with her and others that were going to Atlanta to a seminar. I met her after that. Our friendship grew fast. She had lived in the City all of her life. She was from Akron, Ohio, then Atlanta, and to Madison. She knew little of cows or poultry. I had a blast seeing her learn how to raise their animals and chickens.
We went places, and we went to the same church. In 1976, we went on a Greyhound bus to Los Angeles to see her mother. We saw the countryside. We rode day and night and were on the same bus from Atlanta to Los Angeles. I was in one front seat and she had the other. We were in California and traveling for three weeks.
Soon after our trip, her mother passed away. There is so much to tell, that it would take a book to tell it all. We were two sisters in Christ. Our families ate together, rode the boat together, and just enjoyed years of Christian fellowship.
This is a time that was marked down into eternity with Christ. Recording our years of fellowship, I thank Him, but with years of sickness, our fellowship was broken with distance. But one day, in eternity our fellowship will be forever enjoyed. Praise God for her then! I send my sympathy to the family. I would like to have had the time to have written about some of our fun times.
