Condolences also to Rex Campbell and Joan Hughes on the death of their father, Truman Campbell. Mr. Campbell passed away the first day of 2014 following a lengthy illness.

Sorry Amy Reed I was one day ahead for your birthday. It's the 7th and not the 6th. Maybe you celebrated both days!!
Mike Jakes begins our wishes on the 8th. John Buryl Neely hits double digits on the 9th when he turns 10. The next day Carly Brown turns 11. The 13th is a popular day when Maibeth Thompson, Dustin Nichols, Ashley Gilley Wilson and Christina Davis all celebrate a birthday. Eunice Moore finishes up the week on the 14th. Happy birthday to each and all.
Happy anniversary to "Pete" and Bob Whitaker on the 8th, and to David and Joyce Fuller who wed January 14, 1961. Congratulations to both couples.
