    I tried to email you but it came back. We will probably be in the Kansas City area on Oct. 21st and would like to see you to give you a big hug if you are going to be in the area that day. Either call me or email me if we can come see you in the area that day.

    So sorry to hear about your mom. You know how much I liked her and enjoyed talking to her. She is the one that is responsible for getting me involved in going to church all those years ago. Wish I would have known she was in Louisburg because we go by there frequently and I would have stopped to visit her.
    love you, Paula and Dale
