01/16/2008 - Hope everyone had a nice Christmas and a very happy New Year. For those who made resolutions, I do hope they will come true. I also hope this New Year will be a great year for everyone.
It is hard to believe it is a brand new month and a brand new year, 2008.

Sorry to hear of the death of Roy Kilgore of Martin County. We didn't hear of his death until the day of his funeral. Roy and his wife, Louise, used to live at the Fred Thompson place on Pack Fork, which is now owned by Gary and Judy Harless.
Also sorry to hear of the death of Mary Lou Wilks, sister of Delbert Burchett; death of Joe Kirk, who was killed in an automobile accident; and Bill McCoy. These families have our deepest sympathy.
