Ricky and Donna Hunt returned recently from a trip to France, highlighting Paris and Normandy. They saw Disney Paris, and also visited the D Day beaches, Rouen, Bayeux , and Mont Saint Michel. They finished the trip with a few nights in Paris and dinner and snow at the Eiffel Tower.  What a great adventure!!

So glad to hear that Lib Hill is back in her Forest home now and really doing better!

Dink and Edna Gibson have been sticking close to home, keeping up with Mississippi State University basketball teams on TV!  We look forward to hearing all about the upcoming annual three day trip to Mobile to visit the two long time “W” friends. 

 Friends have shared their concerns about the illnesses of Angela Crimm's brother, Martin Howard, and Ruth Lewis's son, Richard.  Our thoughts are with these families.

In Forest last weekend were Ben and Loren McKibbens of Point Clear, Alabama, and their daughter, Missy and her daughter, Loren Jane Roper of Birmingham, Alabama.

Carol Palmer Threadgill of Tupelo spent last week in Forest visiting with her mother, Jean Palmer.

Several Forest residents have not been feeling well lately.  By the time this edition appears, we hope all are much better!  Get well soon Betty Culpepper, Wanda Brantley and Vickie Hester!!!

Martha Noble Lee Hassell has been in the hospital, following her recent surgery. The family hopes she will be admitted soon to the Shepard Center in Atlanta, Georgia, for what they feel is a giant step towards her best opportunity for recovery.
