I am keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers. I wish I could be there Friday to visit with all of you but I will be in Ohio for a family wedding. Darrell always had such a nice smile and I always enjoyed the time I spent at your house when we were growing up! Sending God's blessings to all of you.
