Christian Women’s Club meets Aug. 14
By Virginia Copeland
David (Sonny) Baker lost his mother this past week. She was nearly 90 years old. She lived in Brandy Station and had a good life with many loved ones and friends that will miss her. Beth, her daughter-in-law, told me she was one of the sweetest ladies you could ever know. She loved everyone and especially children. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sonny and Beth and other family members as they adjust their lives without her.
