Massey Country News

GOD BLESS OUR VETERANS! I am proud this week to say “THANK YOU” to all of our Veterans, those who are still fighting, those who have returned home and those who have given their lives, that we can enjoy the “FREEDOMS” that we are blessed with, here in the United States of America. My grandfather Audie Collins was a World War Two Veteran and my late Dad, John Ward Jr. was a Korean War Veteran. I am very proud to come from a family of Veterans who have served our “Great Country” . May God bless America “Today, Tomorrow, and “Always”  and “May We Never Take Our Freedoms For Granted” .

Bryant and License Commissioner, Cleon Yates, gave her many friends and admirers. Martha was interred at the Corinth West Cemetery on October the 29th.
