Church members spend Sunday at Spirit Hill
Sandra Alldredge attended the fourth birthday party of her nephew, Asa Boyette, on Sunday, April 22, in Booneville. Asa is the son of Brad and Lee Boyette.
Family and friends gathered in Hill Crest Cemetery on Monday to celebrate the life of Clark Cochran, known to some as “Doc.” The service was beautiful, touching on scriptures that were Doc’s favorites. During the reading of one of them, a nice breeze encircled around everyone. I want to think it was Doc with a final goodbye. At the close, the crowd sang the chorus of “How Great Thou Art.” It was a wonderful tribute to a wonderful man who will be greatly missed!
The First Presbyterian Church members were treated to a gorgeous afternoon Sunday at the amazing Spirit Hill Farm, owned by Bob and Sheryl Bowen. The children enjoyed running around the grounds and playing in the pasture with the horses. Reed Morton delighted everyone with a hayride (more than one for the children!) going down to the family cemetery and the airplane hangar. Live music was provided by a wonderful bluegrass group. Wolf River Cafe catered the picnic and it could not have been better! There was an over-abundance of catfish, slaw, hushpuppies, French fries and all the fixings. Everyone enjoyed a delicious blackberry cobbler with ice cream for dessert - yummy! The Bowens were gracious hosts and it is an afternoon my children will never forget, as they have begged all week to return!
