Not a lot of different "stuff" going on with me except I am
FINALLY going to be a "Nana". I am so excited! My son, Hampton, and his
wife, Lindsey, are expecting a baby in February, 2009. Hampton has been
called to Easthaven Baptist Church in Brookhaven, MS, where he is Student
and Family Pastor...there since March, 2007. Lindsey finished college at
Univ. of South Alabama and is teaching 4th grade at West Lincoln in
Brookhaven (going into her second year now). They are thriving in
Brookhaven, very involved in soooo many things there. I am so proud of
them!Just hate having them 2 1/2 hours away, but God knows better than I do
what is best for them.

I am still loving being back on the Coast.......hurricanes and all!
Guess I can say that since I had virtually no damage to my apartment and
furnishings. My heart goes out to those who lost all or most of their
"stuff". I have prayed many times for those I knew who lost so much. This is
still home to me and I don't think I will ever move away again.
Just updating a few things......my son, Hampton, had been called to Four
Mile Creed Baptist Church in Moss Point (actually, Escatawpa), MS, back in
2002 where he is Minister of Youth and Music. He is now married to a
precious girl (Lindsey) he met while at First Baptist Church in Bayou La
Batre, AL (his previous church). They married on Oct. 2, 2004 (their picture
is in the Mississippi Magazine Wedding Registry for 2006). Lindsey is
finishing at Univ. South Alabama in May 2007, so no grandchildren yet! She
will be an elementary education major. I am so happy to have them close to
where I am and get to worship with them every Sunday and have lunch
Not much else has changed......hope everyone had gotten a letter (or maybe
more than one) about our upcoming 45th reunion (Sat. night of Labor Day
weekend) and the 1950s-'61 combined reunion that is on Friday night of Labor
Day weekend. I look forward to seeing all of you there!

offices. I am happy to be back on the Coast. There is just something about the beach, the
water and the sound of seagulls that is music to my ears!
Had a wonderful time at the reunion - wish everyone could've been here.
Hats off to Don Johnson and his "crew" for the great job they did taking
pictures, making name tags, etc.
