Crockett Days

Hunters sharing the harvest Hunters Sharing the Harvest was originally organized in Gibson County in 2008 as Hunters For the Hungry. Comprised of all volunteers, the purpose of the organization is to raise money which will pay for processing of deer donated by hunters. The meat from the processing is then distributed through hunger relief organizations in Gibson County to those in need. In that first year there were 55 deer processed and distributed. In 2012, the generosity of the community was turned into 182 deer (6,350 lbs of venison) processed and distributed. They are preparing for our annual fundraising banquet to be held Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013 at the National Guard Armory in Milan. Dinner will be accompanied with an auction conducted by Darrel Ridgely. Come out and support this great effort at helping those in need in these communities. Tickets are $10 and are available at the door. For more information contact Chapter President, Jay Black, at (731)-676-5909. “The Gibson County Chapter would like to express our appreciation to all those who have made the see page 3

County Mayor’s office earns clean audit BY STEVE SHORT The Gibson Co. Mayor’s office earned a clean audit from the state for the 2013 fiscal year, but three other county offices were flagged for noncompliance. The state audit was released on Sept. 23 by Justin Wilson, Treasury Comptroller. County Mayor Tom Witherspoon’s office achieved compliance this year after having three findings last year. To remedy those findings, the Mayor’s office set up a formal purchase system, included postemployment benefits in financial statements, and made a proper presentation of General Fund financial statements. State auditors cited three findings in three county offices: •In the Office of the Property Assessor mobile home schedules were not mailed to the land owner where the mobile home was located, said auditors. •In the offices of Clerk and Master and Register of Deeds multiple employees operated from the same cash drawer. •Also in the office of Register of Deeds auditors said duties were not segregated adequately. see page 3

Local stargazers host public viewing BY STEVE SHORT A passion for star gazing has brought together a group of local astronomers from the Gibson County area. And they are inviting others to join with them as they explore the night skies. The Forked Deer Astronomy group has been hosting public viewings of the stars at state and local parks for about three years. “Our purpose is to serve the local astronomy enthusiast,� explained member Eric Geater of Trenton. “Forked Deer Astronomy is comprised of local stargazers and telescope owners. The group came into being when no other local astronomy group could be found. Members share see page 3

Insight & Opinion Hidden codes in modern language

Clayburn Peeples reports: I came across a fascinating article the other day about a secret language code that exists in all our conversations and writing, one that subtly indicates how honest we are, whether we are keeping secrets, how self-confident we are and how powerful we perceive ourselves to be in relation to others with whom we are communicating. It is impossible, however, for even the most astute among us to break that code, but computers can do it easily. It all has to do with how frequently, we use personal pronouns such as “I,” “we” and “you.” Several years ago a psychology professor at The University of Texas at Austin discovered that people who wrote about traumatic events they had suffered experienced improved health after doing so. That wasn’t so surprising, but what he did find intriguing was that those writers who used personal pronouns

more frequently in their writing improved more than those who did not. This, of course, led him to ask not only why that might be so, but ask all sorts of questions about what the words we use say about us and our state of mind as well. He was especially curious about how the words linguists call “function words,” the words that hold sentences together, words like “I,” “an” and “that,” could somehow reflect what we were thinking even more than our use of concrete words like “house” and “travel.” Function words are filler words in sentences. They hold them together, but we pay no attention to them because for all practical purposes, we neither hear nor read them when communicating. As a matter of fact, it is humanly impossible to do so. But it is not impossible for computers. A computer can take all your emails or

other writings, or transcripts of your communication, no matter how voluminous, and discern speech patterns the human eye and ear can never hope to notice. Realizing this, the professor fed all sorts of writings into a computer program they developed and analyzed people’s use of words and then matched how their language changed, depending upon with whom they were communicating. And that’s when they began to come up with some pretty interesting observations. They found, for example, that men and women use language differently. (Who would have thought that?) Women, for example, tend to talk more about other people while men are more interested in concrete objects and things in highly specific ways. Thus, men’s speech contains more concrete nouns which necessitates more frequent use of articles such as “a,” “an” and “the.” Men also

Weighed Down with Debt?

tend to categorize more. But one of the more striking differences is that men use the personal pronoun “I” much less frequently than women do. You would have guessed otherwise, wouldn’t you? I’ll leave it to others as to why this difference exists, but other findings might offer clues. It seems, again counter to what most people might guess, that powerful, self-confident people also use “I” sparingly compared to people with less selfesteem. In conversations between people of unequal power or status, the more powerful or “important” person in the conversation nearly always will use “I” less than the other party does. Emotionally healthy people use “I” words less than people who are depressed do. Why might this be? Researchers have hypothesized that pronouns signal where our internal focus is pointing, and when

we are insecure, or suffering, or eager to please, we are paying more attention to ourselves than the world around us. They also found that people keeping secrets, such as those having affairs or embezzling from their employers, unknowingly change their speech patterns, using “I” much less frequently than they otherwise would. A dramatic example of this is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon Bomber. An analysis of his emails seized by the government shows that his use of “I” words dropped by more than half in the weeks preceding the bombing. Another group that uses “I” words infrequently — liars. People who are hiding the truth distance themselves in conversations by avoiding the use of “I.” This effect is so pronounced that a crude linguistic liedetector has been built to identify people who use

“I” words infrequently, along with other verbal markers known to be used by deceptive people, that is accurate 67% of the time. That’s hardly enough to be admissible in court, but provocative nevertheless. But don’t think you can teach yourself to be aware of other people’s use of pronouns and other function words. Our brains just aren’t wired to notice them. Nor can we change ourselves by changing our own use of them. They don’t drive who we are, they reflect who we are, and like it or not, every time we open our mouths, we send out coded messages about what we really think about ourselves and those to whom we are talking. Still, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on your “I’s,” and if you find you’re referring to yourself all day long then maybe there is something amiss in your life you might be missing. Or not. I’m not sure I buy any of this.

Dyer Fire Dept. visits Dyer School BY LORI CATHEY Last week as part of National Fire Prevention Week, Dyer Fire Department took time out to visit children at Dyer Elementary School. Dyer firefighter/public educational officer Lynn Tharp said the firefighters

KENTON CHEVROLET 004 Chevy Trailblazer LT

focused on teaching what to do if a fire starts and to know when the fire department should be called. “The most important thing to do is dial 911,” said Tharpe. “If there is a fire get out.” Dyer Fire Department also handed out fire safety coloring books, activities and fire stickers. Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 that killed more than 250 people and left 100,000

homeless and destroyed more than 17,400 structures. The fires began October 8, but most of the damage happened October 9 1871. In 1920 President Woodrow Wilson issued the first National Fire Prevention Day proclamation. The National Fire Protection Agency was formed in 1896 by a group of insurance firms. The annual Fire Prevention Week is a national campaign for which NFPA has been the official sponsor since 1922. This year fire prevention

week will be observed Oct. 6-12. Fire Prevention Week to inform students and parents the importance of preventing kitchen fires. “This year, we are learning about staying safe in the kitchen. No matter how old you are, kitchen safety is important. Through these educational, family-oriented activities, residents can learn more about the importance of fire escape planning and practice, as well as the power of prevention, said Tharp.

Hunters sharing from page 1 program such a success,” said Black. “First, we would like to thank our processors and food distribution network who assisted with getting the meat into the hands of those who needed it, to all the hunters who unselfishly donated the deer, and to all

of those in the community who supported the program by attending the banquet, making donations, or loaning freezers. Also, we would like to thank our chapter members (all volunteers) whose dedication and hard work led to a successful year,” added Black. “We thank all of you for

being a part of this great program and look forward to continued success and growth in 2013. We invite anyone who would like to be a part of this effort to contact one of our members,” concluded Black. For more information go to rsSharingTheHarvestInc.

County Mayor’s office from page 1 The findings about the cash drawer and failure to segregate duties were also noted last year. “Good internal controls dictate that each employee should have their own cash drawer, start the day with a standard fixed amount of cash, and remove all but the beginning amount at the end of the day,” said auditors. “This amount should be verified to the employee’s receipts at the end of each day. Failure to adhere to this control regimen greatly increases the risk that a cash shortage may not be detected in a timely manner.” There was a dispute between Assessor of Property Gary Paschall and auditors about mobile home assessments. “The assessor should provide to land owners where mobile homes are located a schedule of assessed values of each mobile home before March 1 of each tax year and should review them for

accuracy,” said the audit. Mr. Paschall argued that the county has done more than required. “The finding of the monitoring report does not indicate what the Assessor’s Office was doing,” said Paschall. “Section 67-5-802 TCA states that the Assessor shall furnish the property owners a schedule. It does not state they should be mailed. For the five years I have been the assessor, and for years before that I am told, the reviewer for Gibson Co. would physically visit each mobile home park and review that status of each location in the park with the owner of the park. It appears to me that the Gibson Co. Assessor Reviewer has been going above and beyond the requirements in Section 675-802,” he said. Mr. Paschall said he was out of the office when the auditors visited and an employee had retired. “Our office had recently lost our reviewer to

retirement,” he said. “In the changeover, it appears the prior verification forms may have been lost. Bottom line is that the object of the forms is to gather information, and we have been doing that since September 2008.” Auditors also continued to ask the county to develop a central purchasing system. “The Division of Local Government Audit strongly believes that a central system of accounting, budgeting, and purchasing is a best practice that should be adopted by the governing body as a means of significantly improving accountability and the quality of services provided to the citizens of Gibson County,” said auditors. “The absence of a central system of accounting, budgeting, and purchasing has been a management decision by the County Commission resulting in decentralization and some duplication of effort.”

Mr. Gardner is originally from Milan, and three of the first members of the group are Gibson County residents. The Forked Deer Astronomy group’s next public meeting will be at the Jackson-Madison County Library in Jackson at 6 p.m. on October 22.

Members also plan to host a comet viewing for the public during the early morning hours of the weekend of November 2324 at Natchez Trace State Park. They will view comet C/2012 S1 (ISON). The park setting allows for more people to participate. “Currently we’re still very new, and we haven’t decided whether we’ll simply be a group of unleashed observers, or if we want to pursue better organization, a charter, officers, dues and affiliation with the Astronomical League, a U.S. based advocacy group,” said Mr.

Geater. He said he enjoyed having discussions with other group members about ways to use Stellarium, a free program that can augment observation, or talking about eyepieces that are available, or discussing how to combat dew on humid nights.

Kenton News By Cindy Lamar In preparation for their upcoming trip to Winterfest, the Youth of the Kenton Church of God held a fundraiser. The congregation turned out in support of the youth for their recent Chili Supper that was complete with all the fixins, drink, and homemade dessert and good fellowship. Michelle Dvorak was recently honored with a baby shower at the Woodmen of the World building in Rutherford. She received many very nice gifts from family and friends. Her precious son’s late October arrival is greatly anticipated by his grandmother, Sherry Dvorak and his great-grandmother, Peggy Roberts as well as his aunts, Andrea and Jessie Dvorak. Following a serious decline in his cardiac health, Ronnie Lamar was recently taken to Union City Baptist Hospital’s emergency room. After receiving their professional urgent

care, he was transferred to Nashville’s Vanderbilt Medical Center where after spending four days receiving intensive care, he was discharged. Food for thought: Life as he knew it had gone away, no more lonely hours, no more tear filled days. He was more than happy those days were now past, he was coming to know his true love at last. His true love was special, his new joy was profound. He now loved Jesus, and his blessings abound. Prayer list: Freddie Simmons, Bonnie Graves, Cecil Ray, Dewey and Modine Bradley, Daniel and Faye Sharp, Terry Lane, Jerry Williams, Jackie Hatch, Sam Weatherly, Ronnie Lamar, Terry Sweat, Henry Herane, Tiffany Wigdor, Jesse and Elaine Davidson, Carol and Bobby Primrose, and Clint McLodge.

Bethpage By Joyce Brown It has been a time of sadness and yet joy in our church and community due to the homegoing of our sweet friend and sister in Christ Janice Cooper. That smiling face is now seeing the Jesus that she loved and sang about. Though we will miss her greatly, her pain and suffering is over for all eternity and we are rejoicing in that. Our prayers go out to Jimmy, Jonathan and family, and the Bradley family. May God comfort and bless you in your loss. Our Sunday service began with Janice and Tina playing ‘Jesus, Name Above All Names’ during quiet time and call to worship was ‘His Name is Wonderful.’ Logan did our special music, singing a new song ‘Bless the Lord My Soul.’ I think this is going to be my new favorite. I don’t think the

title is correct but I wrote down what spoke to me. Bro Jeff’s message was ‘Faith and Deeds’ from James 2:14-19 and his night sermon was from Luke 9:23-27 on ‘Steps to Following Jesus.’ He certainly use s his God given gift on expounding the scriptures in a mighty way. We are thankful to have he and his family serving Bethpage. Lots of our folks took part in the activities of Davy Crockett Days in Rutherford. It is a special time of remembering and visiting with old friends and supporting our local small town celebrations. It seems as everyone really enjoyed all aspects of the week’s programs. We all got a little damp Saturday but it didn’t seem to dampen our spirits. The Sellers’were visiting family in Collierville this weekend so we missed them at church. Fall sports and band performances are underway and many attend these events. We are proud of our young people. We will be having our annual bonfire and hay ride the last Sunday night of this month and would to have you come and participate in those fun times. We know how to eat and have a good time and love having folks come and join us. Quote from Bro. Jeff: “Knowing about God may interest us, but knowing God will change us.�

Pharmacy & Your Health Treatment for This Facial Paralysis Bell’s palsy is a type of facial paralysis. Typically, only one side of the face is temporarily paralyzed, although in rare cases the whole face may be affected. Although the cause is not fully known, a virus may cause damage to the facial nerve, causing it to swell and stop working properly. Signs and symptoms of the condition include twitching, difficulty speaking, and loss of taste. Symptoms typically occur suddenly, and peak in several days. Pregnant women and persons between the ages of 15 and 60 years are more likely to be affected by Bell’s palsy. Also, those who have diabetes or Lyme disease may be more likely to be affected. Having a cold of the flu may also increase the risk of experiencing Bell’s palsy, as may an infection, such as from herpes simplex virus. Although Bell’s palsy resolves in about 1 to 2 months without treatment, treatments are available to shorten the duration of symptoms. Glucocorticoids taken by mouth, such as prednisone, may be prescribes to be taken for about a week. Prednisone works to decrease inflammation, however also suppresses the immune system. This medication should be taken within a few days of symptoms Antiviral medications, such as valacyclovir (Valtrex), may be prescribed to be taken along with prednisone for more severe symptoms.

Sure is good to see some of our senior group back; Ann Taylor, Jerry and Greta Tilghman, and Glenn and Shirley Graves also John Davidson and Jennie. We are still missing Keith and Liz Quast. Please keep Royce Turner in your prayers as she recovers at home. There were 67 folks who enjoyed service at North Union the past two Sundays. Sally Baird thanked all who helped make the Davy Crockett fundraiser a success for our youth. Thanks to Logan Rahmn his work with the drums add much to our music sound. Happy birthday wishes were sung to Nathan Quast. Joanne Reed brought our children’s sermon to a pew and half of another pew of young folks. She asked the question what are we afraid of. Everyone expresses fear at times. So many women are afraid of mice and fear strikes a mother when her children are sick. She read from Psalm 27:1 and Michael Moeller closed in prayer. As Sandy Whitley introduced the song ‘I Love You Lord’ she reminded us that we had already completed several acts of worship and as we sang this beautiful hymn

we can open our hearts to receive gifts God has for us. Bro. Chris Marks brought us his own personal message. At one time he wanted to be a football player, but God created him to be a preacher. Football was the enemy that disrupted his being a preacher. In 1999 he surrendered to the ministry. Do not let the enemy have victory over you. Recognize a person by their fruit. Matt. 7:17. The title of his sermon was “Why Do I Preach� with scriptures from Eph. 2: 8,9 and 1 Cor 9:16. Bro. Chris asked for our prayers as we give him the opportunity to be our pastor. Michael Moeller lead our closing prayer. Chelsea Joyce, the little disciples, and others will be traveling to St. Jude in Memphis on Oct. 14th to deliver the fundraiser check. A tour of the hospital is planned for anyone 16 and up. A special activity is planned for the younger youth in the pavillion. October 27th is our Harvest Festival starting at 5 p.m. with finger foods, fun, and fellowship. Enjoy this beautiful harvest time season of our year.

Keely Mill by Diane Hamlin Sunday was a beautiful fall day to be in the Lord’s house. Mike Fields opened our Sunday school hour by leading us in the hymn ‘Jesus Paid It All.’ We dismissed to classes. Keith Hamlin opened the adult class in prayer. Scott Fields did a good job teaching us our lesson ‘The Power to Heal’ from John 5:1-47. We as believers cannot miraculously heal people as Jesus did. Yet we can minister to and help those who are physically impaired or chronically ill in His name. Scott Fields closed us in prayer. Our Sunday morning worship hour began with Elaine Fields playing the piano and Mike Fields and the church choir leading us in our offertory hymn ‘I Will sing the Wondrous Story.’ Scott Fields opened services in prayer. Jennifer, Tonya and Felichia Fields gave testimonies from there recent trip with the church family to A Judgment House. Keith Hamlin welcomed everyone and made

announcements. We had a time of reciting our Bible verse, Praise reports and a prayer request time. The church choir led the congregation in the hymns ‘Near the Cross’ and ‘At Calvary.’ The youth did a good job as they blessed us with our special music ‘It Starts With Me.’ Children’s Church was dismissed to Jennifer Fields. Bro. Keith Hamlin delivered our morning message ‘The Rich Young Ruler’ from Mark 10:1725. Mike Fields dismissed services in prayer as the hymn ‘His Way With Thee’ was sung. Our Sunday night worship services were dismissed to Alamo Baptist Church where Bro. Steve was preaching Revival. We invite you to our Fall Revival and Homecoming this Sunday October 21 at 11 a.m. Bro. John Coleman will deliver our message and music will be by The Masters Call.

But Psalm 139:14 says, ‘Your works are wonderful.’ Look at people through God’s eyes. Patsy Scott gave the prayer. Janice Gibson led the group in singing ‘Try to Remember,’ and the members pledged allegiance to the flag. Peggy Davis then called the roll with each member sharing the definition of a word she had to look up. Teresa McConnell related that the club collect written in 1904 was a prayer written for women’s groups. An excerpt from Longfellow’s poem ‘Morituri Salutamus’ was read: ‘The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, And all the sweet serenity of books.’ Peggy Davis read the minutes of the July meeting which were approved as corrected. Regina Burch gave the treasurer’s report which was accepted as reported. Debbie White presented a check for $50 for the fair booth’s first place prize.

Nineteen Golden Agers met at the Dyer FBC Family Life Center on October 9 for their weekly meeting. President Gary Baker delivered the request for God’s blessings for the food and the day’s activities. The request for prayer included continued prayers for Cody Carter, Brother Jerry Legg, and the family of David Taylor and the family of our own FBC member Harlan Dycus. Anne Thompson’s bronchitis has corrected a lot; Phillip Thompson is thriving at home and Brother Legg preached at both services at Dyer FBC Sunday, October 13. Brother Legg’s future plans also include a short term missionary trip to Brazil in November with among others Brother Roger Stacy, GCBA Director of Missions. The songs of the morning led by Carolyn Temple were, very aptly selected, ‘Praise Him; Praise Him’ and ‘Sweet Hour of Prayer.’ Alice Ernest was the pianist. Kenneth McEwen sang the beautiful ‘Heaven Came Down.’ Pastor of Dyer FBC selected the scripture from Ephesians 4: 11-14 for his devotional to talk about spiritual gifts the ‘keep on giving; as they are executed.

By Alice Ernest

He warned that there is a mind-set among Christians, many times, that the pastor should do all the reaching out to others, but actually the pastor of a flock should prepare the church members to be ministers. Brother DeWayne emphasized that we were not saved to sit but to serve. And just like after the physical birth, growth begins; at the point of salvation, spiritual growth begins according to the inclination of the heart and the determination of the will. He further emphasized many God-given talents are not developed because the person doesn’t recognize that talent or is not aware of the way to use the gift. He illustrated potential by describing the poor living circumstances of an elderly woman who had cared for a wealthy man for many years. Her pride possession was a certificate he had left her that she had framed and had hanging on her bedroom wall. The certificate for stocks was worth millions, but the money remained unused because she did not realize the wealth she possessed. Many Christians spend a lot of time praying ‘use me,’ but they don’t do the action that is required. To close, Brother DeWayne quoted a maxim of

Adrian Rogers; “God didn’t save you to be a member of Christians Anonymous.”

Though their smiles are gone forever and their hands I cannot touch, I still have many memories of you both. Your memory is my keepsake with which I’ll never part, God has you both in his keeping, I have you in my heart. Sadly missed but never forgotten. Brothers-in-law Mike Paschall July 1, 1954 – Oct. 27, 2003 Dale Glisson March 19, 1950 – January 8, 2013 Wife and sister, Gail Paschall

New Hope News By Shirley Hooper On Wednesday we were delighted to welcome Brother Roger Stacy, our Director of Missions visiting for our service. Our minister, Brother Corey Meggs continued the study on making disciples. He explained the shift from Jesus to the church. Christ was no longer with them, they had to adjust. This is explained in Acts chapters 2 and 4. The steps are leadership, guidance, training, outreach, ad pastoral care. Sunday morning our worship service began with Darcie Haliburton reading scripture. Brother Terry Owens blessed us by singing, ‘The blood will never lose its power.’ Brother Corey preached from Jeremiah 29: 1-4. His message was if his people don’t get right with God, He will move them off their land. He spoke of the prophesy in Daniel 9:2 of 70 years of captivity in Babylon. We looked at “The future of Hope.� Verse 11 tells us God has plans for us to give us hope and a future. Our evening service was

quiet different and very enjoyable. Brother Terry asked who would testify, naming those that first invited them to New Hope. We honored our founding fathers; Jim Brown and Tom King. Several told of those who first told them of Christ. Brother Corey read Romans 15: 4-7 and verse 13. All joined hands forming a large circle. We closed with prayer. Youth lock-in will be Friday, October 18 at 9 p.m. for grades 5-12. Men’s prayer breakfast will be Saturday, October 20 at 8 a.m. Cooks are to be there at 7 a.m. Discovering Church Membership Class is October 20 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. October 23 will be soup and chili night at 6 p.m. October 27 we will have service led by our youth under the guidance of our ministers of students, Patrick and Scarlett Spencer, who are doing a great job. What a profound gift God offers us when He promises to always be attentive to us and respond. The Almighty God of the universe cares deeply and intimately for each of us.

When you’re ready please read Isaiah 8:13. It’s wise to make the Lord of Hosts our Lord and fear Him only. It’s as if the prophet Isaiah drew a road that had 2 choices of roads to take. One road; He will be a sanctuary (a safe place) for those who fear Him only. But He will be for a stumbling stone and for a rock of offence to both houses of Israel. He’’ be for a gin (a trap) and for a snare (hindrance) to the inhabitants of Jerusalem; (the government which turned away from the Lord) (Isaiah 8:13-14). “And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken� Isaiah 8:15(KJV). The prophet exclaims, “Many of Jerusalem will stumble and many will fall and many will be broken and any will be snared and be taken (captured). Then he told them to tie up the testimony, seal the law among His disciples, (those who would believe His prophecy) (Isaiah 8:16). There will be a remnant, Show them, live the Law

of the Lord among them (Isaiah 6:13). He’s encouraging all of His army to make a conspiracy against evil. Now there’s a covert operation. Any willing takers? Any secret agents? Isaiah trusts in the Lord. He sets an example for all who call on His name (Isaiah 8:17). “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved� Romans 10:13 (KJV). “Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day, and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing� 2 Timothy 4:8(KJV). “Blessed is the man that endureth temptation for when he is tired, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him� James 1:12(KJV). “Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepard shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away� 1 Peter 5:3-4(KJV).

Card of Thanks I would like to thank everyone involved in the benefit held at Yorkville Park for Belinda Hassell. I would like to thank the companies who donated the food and the ladies who worked so hard organizing, cooking, and serving. Special thanks for all of the cakes and pies that were auctioned off. But most of all, thank you to all of the people from Yorkville and surrounding communities for their generous donations. My family and I will always be so thankful. I will never be able to express how much it means to us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Belinda Hassell To the extended family and many friends of the late, David Matthew Taylor, we wish to extend our sincere thanks for your many prayers, acts of kindness, ad for the condolences and support that we have received. Your prayers, kindness and sympathy continue to be a great comfort to us in our time of sorrow. We also send our gratitude and appreciation to Karnes and Sons Funeral Home and Brother Marlon Stephens. David will be missed forever, but we know that he will live in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. Mr. and Mrs. Ronnie Taylor and family To all of those that made possible, we thank you for the memories. J.W. and Marie King
