Broom earns education degree from Miss. State
Special to The Herald
David W. Broom Jr. recently graduated from Mississippi State University in December 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Education.
He is planning to further his studies at the University of Mississippi in the fall of 2012.
He is the son of the late David. W. Broom and Mazelle B. Broom of Starkville. His grandparents are Willard and Kathryn Broom of Benton.
On May 24 our house completely burned except for the outside walls and garage.
Our family would like to thank the Holly Bluff and Tri-Community volunteer fire departments and also the Yazoo City Fire Department, all of the first responders, Sheriff Jake Sheriff, Fire Marshal Washington, Eric Woods of Yazoo Valley Electric and the YVEPA employee who came in the “cherry picker” to turn off the transformers.
Our thanks to Tre Perry and Nikki - my niece and nephew, Frances Dorris and Angie Luckett for literally holding me up and listening to my crying and heartbreak. Thanks also to all of the many others who were there that I probably didn’t see.
Thanks to our grandchildren Cody, Tara and Madalin and our oldest son who came from Pelahatchie to be with us along with Deedra, who also came. We want to thank Francis and William Dorris. Francis took me to Yazoo City in my pajamas that still smelled of smoke to buy all three of us two outfits and necessary items and food. Thanks to Mary Evelyn Huff Jr. for the doughnuts. Thanks to everyone who offered a place to stay and all concerned. Our thanks to Aunt Louise Templeton and Becky for the great barbecue, beans slaw and potato salad. A special thanks to Mr. Ed Goodwin for providing us a place to stay that was already furnished. Thanks to Wendy Riley for letting us get extra clothes from her shop. Oh, and thanks to the American Red Cross for their assistance.
The people in our small community may be few, but the support, love and prayers are huge!
Lastly, thank you Jesus Christ for letting our son John’s Friday night plans fall through. If John had not been home to wake us up, I don’t believe we would be alive today.
God bless each and every person who helped. Thanks to all of you, and with God’s help, we are going to come through this terrible nightmare. Please continue to pray for us.
Ronnie, Linda and John Coghlan
God loves his children, and he wants us to grow in faith and wisdom. When we live in His grace each day we become closer and closer to our Father.
Call your neighbor today and ask them if they need anything. Let them know that you care about them. Maybe when you’re in a time of need they’ll remember when you checked in on them when they were down in life and you helped bring them back with a kind word that God placed in your heart.
Remember your neighbor.
