Eugene Usry spends Christmas in Florida

Eugene Usry left on Dec. 22, going to spend Christmas with his son and his family in Brandon, Fla. He visited with Mike and his wife Bobbie Kay Usry and their children Erica and Alex Usry, all of Brandon, Fla.

He said that he surely enjoyed being with his family. They played golf a lot while he was there.

His family gave him a golf bag for Christmas. He was really happy to get the golf bag because he said that he needed a new one.

Eugene returned home on Dec. 28 after spending a week in Brandon with his family.

Families visit during Christmas holidays

Vicki Justice's sister and brother-in- law, Iris and Joe Menendez, usually spend Thanksgiving in Ellaville with the Justices, which they did this year. The families were able to squeeze in some time  seeing each other during the Christmas holidays.

Joe and Iris usually spend Christmas in Florida with Joe's family (Menendez family), but this year their son and his family were home in the USA for the first time since the birth of their granddaughter, so the baby's grandparents came to Warner Robins  (Centerville) to be with their children for Christmas.

The Wilbur Justice family always celebrates Christmas on Christmas Eve together so that the children can spend Christmas Day at home with their Santa Claus and gifts and their families. So on Christmas Day Wilbur and Vicki went to Warner Robins (Centerville) to have Christmas with Joe, Iris and their son Joey and Rena, Adriana and Colton Menendez. Wilbur and Vicki's grandson Caleb Justice’s in-laws  live in Andersonville so when they started back home (Macon), they stopped by the Menendez home in Centerville to visit with the family.

Vicki said with all the coming and going with their family they were all able to touch base with each other and had a wonderful holiday. She said that she's ready for 2013, and to get back to the basics of every-day living and wants to wish everyone a Happy New Year.
