Her birthday was celebrated by Joan Turbe and Vickie Miller who came up on Saturday from Waveland, and Pam Hurdle and Becky Harris who came up on Sunday. Betty was visited on her birthday by Dolly White, Beth McCrosky, Jean Gurley, Vickie Sweet, and Chuck Bennett. A birthday party was thrown in the hospital room by some of her closest friends, including Brenda Luther, Becky Ritter, Jerri Hendrix, Jean Doxey, Barbara Taylor and Lynn Hogan.

Please keep her in your prayers.

Billy Cupp Jr., spent a wonderful few days in Las Vegas, Nevada, last week. He met up with long time friend, Alex McCrosky, formerly of Holly Springs. The men were anxious to see the Oscar De La Hoya and Ricardo Mayorga boxing match, which was held at the MGM Grand in Vegas. De La Hoya was coming off of an 18+ month leave from the boxing ring. The much anticipated and highly publicized fight was the highlight of Billy’s trip. De La Hoya took the fight with a TKO, capturing the WBC super welterweight belt, proving once again that he is truly the “Golden Boy” of boxing.
The annual banker’s convention was held at the Sandestin Resort in Florida last week. Among those who attended were Mr. and Mrs. Ben Seale, Mr. and Mrs. Bob Carrington, Mr. and Mrs. Greg Taylor, Mr. and Mrs. S.B. Gresham, Steve Gresham, Frances Moore, Mr. and Mrs. Todd Talley, Mr. and Mrs. Jakey Hurdle, Mr. and Mrs. Shep Smith, Mr. and Mrs. Bobby Bonds, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Crain and Mr. and Mrs. Jim Crell.
