Pike County is a very caring county and people always step up where there’s a need. And, when a child is involved, people really pull together. It was overwhelming.”The restaurant was packed for about three hours and the parking lot and surrounding grounds were filled to overflowing. Cars were parked along busy Highway 231.“When I went to bed Tuesday night I thanked the Lord for so many caring people and that there were no traffic accidents,” Umbehagen said. “That was a worry for me.” Pike Countians have a proud tradition of caring and has been no more evident than Tuesday night.

So, we don’t have any idea how many people. We just know we had 600 tickets.

He’s always happy and smiling and just a pleasure to have in class. He’s special to all of us.”Mary Adams, secretary at Banks Primary School, said the phone had been ringing almost constantly Wednesday morning with calls from people who wanted to make a donation to Alex and his family. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Print Article “A lot of people weren’t able to go to the spaghetti supper and they wanted to know how they could help,” Adams said. “A fund has been set up at Troy Bank & Trust in the name of Kim or Alex Morgan and that’s the information that I have been giving out.”Alex’s teacher, Alithia Gunter said his classmates adore him and there’s not a day that goes by that they don’t talk about Alex.“What they know is that Alex is sick and in the hospital,” she said. “They are very optimistic that he will be back soon and I encourage that optimism and faith. Alex is a very special little fellow and he is always in our conversations. His classmates make cards for him and bring presents. They always want to do something for him. They certainly haven’t forgotten about him.”Gunter said the ideas for the benefit originated with Trevor Bryan, “Alex’s best buddy.”“Trevor started the whole thing because he wanted to do something good for Alex,” she said. “His grandmother and her sister own Sisters and his mother, Judy, works there. She came up with the idea of selling ‘Apples for Alex’ at the restaurant.”Gunter said one day Judy Bryan approached the teachers at Banks Primary about a benefit spaghetti supper and asked if they would be willing to help.“Of course, we were all very proud to have the opportunity to do something like that for Alex and his family,” Gunter said. “It all started with ‘Apples for Alex’ and went from there and the response has been overwhelming.” Book Nook to reopen Email the author Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By Jaine Treadwell Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
