A resident of Memphis, Willie “Edd” Coleman wanted to celebrate his 90th birthday “Down Home” in Aliceville, Ala. Thanks to family, he did.
Attendees, including TSD freelance photographer Tyrone P. Easley (a family member), made the trek to Aliceville from various parts of the county to celebrate with the oldest of the Coleman family on May. 22.
An invitation to the family affair included this gem: “The birthday boy will gladly accept gifts but your presence is even better.”
The feel-good event was held in an Aliceville park. And with COVID-19 still a factor, masks were provided, along with this point of reference:
“We want everyone to stay safe while celebrating with the birthday!”
In addition to a clambake and picnic, the celebration included Sunday worship at Mt. Hebron Baptist Church, where the Rev. Marcus Wright is the pastor.
