Hope everyone had a good Easter and didn't eat too many eggs or too much chocolate. I had my first bite of chocolate candy in six weeks and it was heavenly. Mmmm!

Dick, Kyle and I went to Granada to celebrate Easter with my sister, Jerene DeBono, and husband, Ian, and their son, Chad; my mom, Mary Huddleston; my two brothers, Mike and Larry; my niece, Gina Dechant and family; and Nancy Sutphin. We had a cook-out and everything was delicious.

Mike, Larry and Jerene and I will be traveling to Emporia, Kansas Monday to attend a cousin's funeral Tuesday morning.

Our condolences to the family of Lee Evans, who passed away over the weekend. Lee and June and their children lived in the Towner and Cheyenne Wells area for many years.

Denis and Theresa Weber were in Denver to celebrate Easter with all of their family that lives there and spend time with Jerry, who is gradually feeling better. Hang in there Jerry, we're all pulling for you!

Merle and Carol Shalberg hosted Easter dinner for Greg, Penni and boys; Steve, Dalton and Dawsen; Brock, Beth and children; Lori; Bill and Charlotte Woelk and Char Korrel and friend, Ed Carrington. Last Thursday, Carol went to Ulysses, Kansas, to watch her grandson Dawsen play baseball. They won their double header.

Evan and Jen Hopkins and children and Christy Hopkins enjoyed Easter dinner at their mom, Cheri Hopkins' home.

Weekend guests of Monte and Linda Stum were their daughter Kami Janes and her family and Linda's dad, John Andrews. All of the Stum clan gathered at the home of Linly and Sherell Stum for Easter dinner.

Larry and Judy Tuttle; Kelvin, Amy, Alex and Mikayla Schmidt and Tim Harris were Easter dinner guests of Bryan, Dorcas and Abby Berggren.

Tuttle family members from Towner, Elbert, Longmont and Haviland, Kansas, gathered at the home of Eric and Lindsey Jensen in Granada last weekend for their annual making of "Gritza," a German dish. Lots of good food and visiting.

Jeremy and Christi Stulp and family enjoyed Easter dinner at the home of Christi's parents, Burl and Cathy Scherler.

Saturday before last, Joann Harris and daughter, Tammy, went to Eads to watch Ryker Pryor wrestle. He won a trophy and was so proud of it. Way to go Ryker. Sunday, Vernie and Joann attended the first birthday party for their great-grandson, Monroe Frey, at the Cobblestone Inn in Eads. Happy 1st birthday Monroe! Monday, the whole Harris clan traveled to Las Animas to attend the baby shower for Trey and Aly. Their baby is due any day!!

A reminder about the Ladies Retreat this coming Friday and Saturday at the Sheridan Lake Bible Church.

Have a great week!!
