“Use your worldly resources to benefit others and make friends.

Then, when your earthly possessions are gone, they will welcome you to an eternal home.”

~Luke 16:9 NLT~

Ann Lane (Amite)

As most of you know I will be moving to Houma on the 3rd of March. I will not have Facebook or email for a few days ,will catch up when I do get back on line. Packing ,seventeen boxes so far,more to come. The move is bitter sweet,now that Mike is no longer here with me,to sad to be in the same surrondings. I know the move will not remove the hurt I feel at his passing. I resently realized I am a tweener,not in my old life, not in my new life,somewhere inbetween,believe me not a good place to be. Love all my friends and family that has been so supportive. Keep in touch!




Gail Morris Miller Smith (Tennessee)

Update on Gigi- Gail Smith. She wants me to tell everyone thank you for your prayers and sweet messages. We are all sad that the cancer has returned that was in remission. It is growing again in her right lung and a mass has formed on her back near her spine. She will undergo 15 treatments of radiation to hopefully shrink the cancer so it doesn’t cause her to become paralyzed. The mass is also causing fluid to build up in her lungs. This is the biggest issue at the moment because she can’t breathe well. She is on oxygen 24-7 and they are discussing ways to put a catheter in her side to drain the fluid in her right lung. That may not be the medical term for it but basically is what they are discussing. The hospice facility will be the next step. This is the hardest part of the journey for Melanie, Eddie and myself. To see our loving mother, our last living parent, to slowly slip away. Thank you all for fighting this fight with us! Much love- Gail/Gigi, Robin, Melanie & Eddie❤️ (Written by Robin M. Jordon)


Jeffrey Brister (Roseland)

Please keep my brother Jeff Brister in your prayers. He’s going back into surgery tomorrow to have a procedure done on his knee. If all goes well, and we are believing that it will, it should be out patient. Thanks (Written by Leticia Brister)


Mr. I. W. Simmons (Line Creek)

 Here is what I can’t tell you. He has a large mass in his stomach region ( too large for them to get an actual measurement) it is growing by the day and started affecting his breathing a couple of weeks ago, which was a sign something was wrong. It is now restricting his food from going down. The mass is inoperable and cemo is out of the question. He has an appt tomorrow with oncologist to see if radiation is an option to get some relief. I ask for prayers that Papa will be pain free during this chapter in his life and for our family patiences and strength. The Lord knows what lies ahead and I pray he prepares each of us for what that is. Friends I’ve ask for a lot of prayer request over the years. Y’all have always come thru. I have felt lifted and a blanket of mercy and grace placed over me. I thx y’all for that. This will be a tough time in our lives but with Gods love and your prayers we will arise victorious (Written by Ginger Simmons)
