On New Years Eve, Ward and Marsha Whitaker hosted the Satsop Pinochle Club. I had the fun of joining them for a evening of playing pinochle. A good evening and I was home in time to see the New Year at the Space Needle on the TV. A nice safe way to bring in the New Year.
Saturday I attended the memorial service for Glenda Ramey held at the Elma Eagles Club. What a big gathering of family and friends to pay their respects to a wife, mother, aunt, sister and friend. So many of her friends from high school were there to honor her and say their good-byes. My prayers are with you Ron and to all the family.
Saturday evening Cliff and Sunny Cotey joined Jim and I for dinner at our home. A fun evening of looking at some old 4-H pictures and remembering the fun days of growing up in Elma.
Sunday morning at the Satsop Methodist Church Pastor K and her husband, Dick, hosted breakfast. A good way to start out a Sunday morning. Pastor K led the Sunday service. Cadie Nuxoll and Oliver Vandewark lit the candles. Pastor K read the Scriptures. Prayers were asked for the families of Barbara Meinberg and the family of Glenda Ramey. Prayers were also asked for Tim Nuxoll and Dick Jacobs for health problems. Joys: Bruce Straughn shared the joy of having grandsons visit during the holiday and have returned home. Mike Tobola shared the news that his wife Arline had a good report from the Dr. on her lungs getting cleared up and hopefully she will be well enough they can schedule her surgery. The offering was collected by Mark Carpenter and Russ Combs. Pastor K and Russ Combs served Communion.

I had a very nice phone call from Marilyn Sturm this past week telling me how much she enjoys reading the Satsop News. Thanks for the call, it was so nice to talk to you and remember the time we shared as members of Beta Sigma Phi. I met Marilyn and many other beautiful women in the Grays Harbor area many years ago through Beta Sigma Phi. Again thanks for the call.
Have a good week and I just want to say: “Go Seahawks!”
My thought for the week is from Mark Twain: “Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can read.”
