Sad to report that Donna Edwards McKibbens, wife of Tom McKibbens,, passed away early last Saturday morning, due to complications from Covid. Needless to say, he is devastated, and needs our continued prayers. There was a quite large graveside service last Tuesday. A church service in Worcester, Massachusetts, celebrating the life of Donna McKibbens, will be held sometime after Thanksgiving…December date yet to be determined.
Lamar and Barbara Gatewood enjoyed the absolute best weekend possible, celebrating their beautiful granddaughter, Micah Joyner (Clark) and her new husband Alex Clark. The weather was amazing and even better fellowship with family. All certainly missed Lamar and Barbara Gatewood, who were unable to make it in person, but were most assuredly there in spirit (and via FaceTime). Best wishes to this special young couple!!
Following the beautiful Florida wedding of Micah Joyner (Clark) and Alex Clark last week, Alicia and Mike Joyner of Tallahassee arrived on Wednesday to spend Thanksgiving in the home of Alicia’s parents, Barbara and Lamar Gatewood.
