[Imitating Christ’s Humility]

Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.

~Philippians 2:1-2 (NIV)~

Maddie is finally finished and on her way home. She is relieved to have that over and finished. The spot was small so that is good. They are sending it off and we should know something next week. Thank you for the prayers!!! We will post as soon as we get results.




Yesterday, there were serious traffic issues on major roads in our area.  Pray for those involved and the families of those who lost their lives.  Pray for drivers and passengers to be careful and considerate as they travel.

  • Maddie’s Miracles (written yesterday)

Maddie will have a fine needle biopsy in the morning on a lymph node in her neck that has been there for a while. Doctor was waiting to see if it would go back to normal size and it hasn’t so they are going to check it out. She has the best doctors who truly care about catching any and everything that goes on with her. Prayers are appreciated and we know that God has her in the palm of HIs hand. God is good ALL the time. We should have results next week. Thank you prayer warriors!

Scripture Writing – August 14 – 2 Thessalonians 2: 16-17




David Ray Hilbun, Jr.

March 12, 1972 – August 12, 2019

A resident of Kentwood, LA was peacefully welcomed into the arms of Jesus on August 12, 2019 at his home surrounded by his loving family. Born March 12, 1976 in McComb, MS to his loving parents, David Ray, Sr. and Judy Newsom Hilbun. David was a boilermaker by trade and took pride in his work. He would often talk for hours about a job he was on. Moving up in his career, he always looked out for the guys that worked under him and looked at them as an equal. Often he would say, “I was in their shoes at one time.” He never hesitated to get right along side them to lend a hand when needed. On his time off, David enjoyed spending time with his family and friends and especially the light of his life, his precious granddaughter, Saylor Grace. David enjoyed spending time on the river, whether it was running a trout line or just wetting a hook. He loved the peacefulness of the river, always looking for the “Big Catch”. When David wasn’t on a river bank somewhere, you could find him outside cleaning up his Harley Davidson to take a ride for the day. He loved the open air and the freedom of the open road while riding his beloved Harley Davidson motorcycle. David is survived by his wife of 23 years, Brandi McDaniel Hilbun; 3 daughters and a son-in-law, Kelsey Hilbun, Shelby H. Oliver and husband, Bruce, and Harley Hilbun; a granddaughter, Saylor Grace Oliver; father, David Ray Hilbun, Sr.; sister, Misty Hilbun; 2 aunts, Barbara Ann Hilbun Graham and Dorothy Newsom Morris; fathers-in-law and mothers-in-law, Richard and Karen McDaniel and Jimmy and Julie Holton; 3 sisters-in-law and 2 brothers-in-law; and numerous cousins and friends that loved him dearly. He was welcomed into his heavenly home by his mother, Judy Ann Newsom Hilbun; sister, Tanya Denise Hilbun; paternal grandparents, Dave Odie and Maxine Lea Hilbun; maternal grandparents, Willie, Sr. and Helen Brumfield Newsom. Pallbearers will be Brad Yarborough, Skipper Venable, Kirk Keller, Barry Wall, Jerry Newsom, Jr. and Josh Newsom. Honorary pallbearers will be Ruben Prejean, Keith Keller, Kenny Ray Graham, Victor Joe Morris, Roy Blades, and Claude Forrest. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7. The family would like to express their thanks for all the phone calls, visits, texts, and food throughout this time. Visitation at McKneely Funeral Home, Kentwood, from 10:00AM until religious services at 2:00PM on Friday, August 16, 2019. Services conducted by Dr. Danny Smith. Interment Woodland Cemetery, Kentwood. For an online guestbook, visit
