Karl and Roberta Byers returned home Saturday, June 22 from a seven day trip through Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana. They visited Karl’s sister, Irma Holden and his high school buddy, Ken and Margaret Barker in Covington, La. and then his brother Gene Byers in Mandeville, La. On their return home they stopped and visited his other brother and sister, Thomas Byers and Helen and Philip Levatino in Yellville, Ark.
They traveled through some heavy rain storms but no hurricanes fortunately. This being their first trip back to the coast since Hurricane Kristina, they saw numerous changes to how everything looked. As always, they had a good time but were glad to be back home.
On Sunday, June 23, they were in attendance at the Koller Reunion held at the Comfort Inn in Macon. There were more than 75 in attendance so they enjoyed the fellowship of family and friends.
Sunday lunch guests of Marsha Hammons were, Ed and Beverly Rhoades, Linda Phillips, Delores Harpster, Carolyn Read, Julie, Sheridan and Dalton Howe and Elva Thorne.
Marsha Hammons had open heart surgery on Tuesday, June 25 to replace the aortic artery. She is doing very well and is expected to be released on Saturday, June 29. The visitors, calls and cards were appreciated.
