Chuck and Merriam Foster went to Louisiana to see their daughter in a singing group, The Louisiana Baptist Women’s group. This is a very good group of ladies singing. They do light performances a year at different churches. While Chuck and Merriam were in Louisiana, their son, Turner came from Memphis to see his family.
The Fosters went to North Mississippi to see Jacob their grandson to play soccer. They enjoyed seeing their daughter, son, son-in-law and grandchildren. They came back with a cold, which has them feeling bad, but they will feel better in a few days. Julie Godbe had a birthday on October 14. Dennis and Julie were invited out to eat by Macon and Betty Moore. I was so sorry to hear of the death of Beatrice Smith of Eatonton. She was someone that I had known for more than fifty years. We worked together almost ten years. At one point, she and her husband Ed Smith, adopted a little girl and a boy that were brother and sister. They came from a family that had several other children. I saw how she dressed Linda up so cute with pretty dresses that she made. Her son was also dressed up. She and no children of her own. These two made her so happy. Linda became her caregiver as she aged for a numbers of years. Linda and her husband moved in with Beatrice some years ago. I have no information of the funeral plans. I will not be able to go to the funeral.
Robert Smith, Sr. has a birthday on October 16. Shane Smith has a birthday on October 18. Happy Birthday to you!
