Dr Jimmy, Sharon and Abby went to Atlanta, Georgia, last weekend to visit his uncle and aunt, Dr Clyde and Alberta Harrison.

Robin and Zoe Brumfield just returned from their annual January cruise to the Caribbean. It was another bagpipe band sponsored piping cruise where Zoe took lessons and attended workshops during the sea days. They visited Key West, Freeport and Nassau, Bahamas, where snorkeling and sea breezes abounded!! It was a nice sunny break from winter in Mississippi!!

Please keep Martha Noble Lee Hassell in your thoughts and prayers, as slow progress continues enough to no longer require acute care. Since she’s not yet ready for extensive therapy at Methodist Rehab, Martha Noble has recently been moved closer to home to Jones County Rest Home, where she can recover and prepare for more extensive rehab.

Many of our readers will be interested in knowing that Ellen Stegall was moved from Forrest General Hospital to The Windham House last week.  The Windham House, in Hattiesburg, is the same facility where her son Lee is now a patient.  Ellen hopes to continue her recovery and rehabilitation there and to be able to return to an independent living situation.

We were sorry to learn of the death of Tommy Lamar of Oxford.  Tommy was the brother of Dr. Wayne Terry Lamar, husband of Linda Lackey Shelton Lamar.  Tommy died as a result of an automobile accident in Oxford that occurred on January 19th.  Tommy was also a high school classmate and friend of Norma Ruth Lee.  We send our sympathy to the family and many friends.
