Here we are Thursday afternoon and snow-covered again.
We got about another 3 inches up until a little after 10 a.m. I don’t know what time the snow started, but I was very glad it quit. It still doesn’t look very promising outside. I sure hope we don’t get any more ice. We had another covering of ice on Monday morning. Everything was a big sheet of ice. The kids already had off on Monday because of Presidents Day, so they didn’t miss any school.
On Tuesday morning, they had a two-hour delay.
Yesterday, the kids brought their laptops home with them, so they wouldn’t miss school today.
I got our two decks and front porch cleaned off twice, and I got our car all cleaned off, because in the morning, early, I have to go back to the hospital in Bedford to have some more mammogram pictures taken because last Thursday when I had my mammogram done, the hospital called me later in the afternoon to tell me I needed to come back to the hospital for more tests. There was a concern and they wanted to check it out. So I have to be at the hospital by 8:15 a.m.
Last week after I had already written my column, I got a call from my friend and classmate, Lois (Black) Cook, to let me know that our classmate, Jean (Jones) Hedge had passed away on Feb. 11. Jean was married to our classmate, Telford Hedge. I was hoping they would put her obituary in the Bulletin, but I didn’t see anything this week. I am sorry I don’t have any more details to tell you. I do know they were married a long time. They married shortly after we graduated, and I think they had six children, but I don’t know their names. Maybe by next week I will have some more information. Thanks for calling, Lois.
I want to congratulate Megan Molosky on scoring her 1,000th point. That is always a very exciting time when any athlete reaches their 1,000 goal. Also congratulations to Abbie Weaver, who is a junior at Tussey, for pushing her team ahead in overtime to win over Everett, 41-35. Way to go girls, keep up the good work.
I was sorry to read that another fire destroyed a home in Defiance, the home of Ron and Pamela Grimes. Please keep this family in your prayers.
I would like to offer my sincere sympathy to the following families.
The family of Bryan Foor Sr., of Coalmont, who passed away on Feb. 9. I pray God will comfort his dad, Chet, and his stepmother, Norma, his wife, Nicole, his children, Adain, Kayla, Bryan Jr., Rachelle, Tiffany, Bradley, Conner and Nevaeh, and their families; his brothers, Keith, Kevin, Matthew, and Chester Jr., and his best friend, John Williams, and also all others who knew and loved him. Bryan was our neighbor when we first moved in the back alley and Bryan Jr. and Rachelle used to play with Jessica.
The family of Everett Miller Jr., of Saxton, who went to be with the Lord on Feb. 9. I learned to know “Junior” and like him when he used to come to the Black Diamond Cafe a few years back. He was always so nice and we had many interesting conversations together. I know he was very well liked and I know he will be greatly missed. May God comfort his children, Darla, Janice, Larry, Kevin and Bill, and all of their families, and his sister in law, Betty, and her family, and all others who knew and loved him.
The family of Joseph Morrow Jr. of Six Mile Run, who went to be with the lord on Feb. 7. May God comfort his children Darla, Dottie, Paul, Don, John, Jeffery, Mark and Joseph, and all of their families, and his daughter in law, Sarah Jane, and her family, and all others who knew and loved him.
The family of Walter “Walt” Heath, of Wood, who passed away on Feb. 11. May God comfort his wife, Stephanie, children Shawn and Autumn, and his sisters Terry and Sally and their families and all other relatives and friends who knew and loved him.
May all of these families find strength and peace in God’s comfort.
