Happy Birthday Elizabeth Fritts

Happy Birthday Elizabeth!

Yesterday we traveled an hour north of here to help celebrate Frances' sister (Elizabeth's) Birthday.  She and her husband Curtis have graciously entertained and blessed hundreds and hundreds of people through the years.  We all went to the Cracker Barrell last night in Beth's honor.  She is a retired school-teacher.

Happy Birthday to Elizabeth. It's wonderful that so many of you were able to get together to celebrate her birthday.
I hope you were able to get Curtis up to steam with his new laptop.

Just wondering...and thanks for your ever-so-sweet comments.

Hi Fred, that looked like fun.
I love Cracker Barrel too. I go there every now and then. I like the shop they have with the one here.
Have a great day!

It looks like everyone had a fun time! Mmm, Cracker Barrel is delicious. I'm sure you all enjoy getting together. Family is a blessing.

Hope you were able to help Curtis with his new laptop.

Thanks for sharing your pictures with us! :)

Happy Birthday to Aunt Beth. Hard to believe she is really 17 years younger than her mother. She looks much younger than that.

I am glad you all had a great time. I miss that stuff being here in the great white north.

love you!a

About Me

Cleveland, TN, United States
I am Fred Alton Brannen, the son of Louis A. Brannen (deceased) and Bonnie Jones Brannen, Louis was an Ordained Bishop with the Church of God. Bonnie is an Ordained Licensed Minister and at 89 years of age is still actively engaged in speaking and singing engagements. I am married to the former Frances Hildreth. We celebrated 53 years of marriage this past June and we are the parents of 3, grand-parents of 10, and great-grandparents of 10. I pastored in Tennessee for 24 years and served the Church in some capacity in missions for over 23 years. I retired from full-time ministry in August of 2008 but remain active, speaking and singing and teaching whenever opportunity affords itself. In January of 2010 I received a letter of commendation for having been credentialed as a minister in the Church of God for 50 years! My family is very important to me. Our get togethers are always noisy affairs and most times will include family sing-alongs. The children love their Mom's cooking so we have the privilege of seeing them regularly! WE LOVE having them over.
