Christmas at Don and Sharon Tingle McKay's home was another family fun time. Their three children, Mollie McKay Johnson, Samuel McKay, and Richard McKay were all home for the holidays along with their spouses and the McKay's four grandchildren, Eleanor Johnson, Anna Margaret, Fletcher, and Isaac McKay. They were joined by Sue Tingle who shared the opening of presents with her family.
The Richard McKay family came from Texas while Samuel and Mollie came from Mississippi to enjoy the fun and family time!
A former resident of Philadelphia who now resides in Tupelo, Isaiah Autry, is a talented football player who has received many offers from colleges and universities all over. His latest offer was from Auburn University. He plays on theItawamba Agricultural High School football team.
His mother, Pashen Thompson-Dent, feels he is blessed to receive this offer! He is certainly one gifted football player who will have several choices of where to further his education after high school. His grandmother, Ruby Thompson-Brazzle, is a Philadelphia resident and one of his most ardent fans!
