June Willingham left us July 25. She welcomed us to the FCC when we moved to Woodson years ago. She was always so good to us and to my kids. She had stories to tell them and made them feel welcome and special. She may have teased them just a little. June was one of the first to hold Claire when we brought Claire home from the hospital. She just laughed and talked to her, causing one of Claire’s first smiles. Thank you, June. Arliss, we love you.
Please pray for June’s family. Services were graveside on Tuesday, August 2. Please continue prayers for the family of Terry Beale. His services will be announced at a later date. Continue to pray for the family of Dale Deaton, Sr.
The First Baptist Church had a great week of Vacation Bible School. So thankful to this church for providing this faithful education to our kids. They had over 40 kids per evening and used the “SPARK” curriculum, teaching the kids that they were “created, designed and empowered” by God.
The Woodson FFA Officers had a day long “officer retreat” to plan the year on July 21.
