Jewel Kay Cutrer is home from the hospital with her pacemaker.  Pray it is helpful to her.

 

 

 

David – I hate to ask for prayers again, but something else has happened to David.  We had three medical appointments last week.  On the way home yesterday, he told me his vision wasn’t right.  That led to the fourth doctor visit!  The lower half of the field of vision in the right eye was not there.  Instead, everything was black.  We went to a doctor.  By the time we got in, the black area was fuzzy.  After all the retina surgeries he has had, I knew we had to get attention.  The doctor said something in a blood vessel moved through his eye, but it seemed to be better.  Testing of his vision was done.  We go back on the 19th, unless we need to go again sooner.  The field of vision is almost normal this morning.  We thank God for that.  Please continue to pray for David, and me, as we seem to deal with one issue after another.  God is faithful to walk each step of this journey with us.

 

 

 

Tonight is the proper time to change your clocks forward!

James W. (Jimmy) McGraw

June 05, 1948 – February 27, 2019

James W. (Jimmy) McGraw of Amite, Louisiana, and beloved husband of Carolyn Moore McGraw for 49 years, died peacefully at home on February 27, 2019, after a lengthy battle with cancer. Jimmy was born June 5, 1948, to Margaret and Robert West McGraw. He grew up in Woodville, Mississippi, and graduated in 1966 from Woodville Attendance Center where he excelled in academics and athletics. Jimmy received both his undergraduate and master’s degrees from Mississippi State University in accounting and data processing. He was a self-employed Certified Public Accountant in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Amite. Jimmy was preceded in death by his parents and his brothers, Rogers, Roy, and Robert McGraw. He is survived by his wife, Carolyn, and two sons, David Brian McGraw (Susan Esteven) and Michael Scott McGraw. He is also survived by four grandchildren, Tristen Brian McGraw, Keaten David McGraw, Presley Susan McGraw and Michael West McGraw and numerous nieces and nephews. Also his little dog, Sweetie Pie, who stayed by his side during his illness. One of Jimmy’s greatest passions was his love of family. He enjoyed spending quality time with his grandchildren and introduced zip-lining, snorkeling, indoor skydiving and deep sea fishing to them at an early age. Jimmy was an avid sports fan and enjoyed watching the Mississippi State Bulldogs, New Orleans Saints, Chicago Cubs and San Diego Padres play ball. Jimmy also enjoyed all holidays as was evident in his vast collection of decorations and yard art. He loved animals, and, of course, loved Miss. State bulldogs. The family would like to thank all of Jimmy’s health care providers, Dr. Saux, all the personnel, especially Lisa King and Kathy Mason at St. Joseph’s Hospice and Dr. Zachary Pray for the excellent care he received during his illness. We would especially like to thank Jimmy’s dearest childhood friend, Lewis Prine, for the numerous hospital visits and trips he made with Jimmy to M.D. Anderson in Houston, Texas. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, March 14 with visitation from 9 to 11 and service at 11:00 at the First United Methodist Church in Amite, Louisiana. A celebration of Jimmy’s life will follow the memorial service at Claire’s on Mulberry.

Shoeboxes don’t get packed in a big way in October/November unless shopping begins early.  Suggested items to look for now include small cars, small plastic animals, small stuffed animals, and small dolls.  Items can be left in the classroom next to the choir.  Thank-you for helping now and in the coming months.  One suggestion is to make some purchases each month, not to wait until the last minute.

 

 

 

Don’t forget about the associational WMU meeting at Greensburg at 10 this morning.

 

 

Prayers and praying friends mean more than you know to those around you.
