    Good evening, my friends.
    Your prayers are requested for Miz Anton and her family as her mother sheds her earthly raiment for one more suitable for heaven.
    Mamaw has had 86 years on this planet, raising three children, four grandchildren, and then eight great-grandchildren, and has also touched the lives of others beyond count.
    A southern-born farm child of the "Hungry Thirties," Mamaw had all of that generation's stubborn-ness, integrity, stamina, and ingenuity. No one who came to her door ever went away without a full belly, kindly and loving assistance for their lives, and a witness for the Lord.
    In my last-ever conversation with Mamaw, she said to me:

    "You're the yankee boy that married my daughter.
    You talk different, you think different, and you eat different.
    But I've been praying over you all along, and you've turned out all right.

    High praise indeed for this undeserving soul.

    So, please keep Miz Anton, Mamaw, and the family in your prayers, please.
