  1. Dear Judy,

    Thank you for rembering me about your web site. It is very nice. It is very nice. I still have the book Given to Hospitality, and keep it handy for all the great infomation it contains.

    I know you’re last crusade must have been successful as the Lord said his word will not return void.

    Just a note to pass on to your friend that was with you at our home after your Dad’s funeral,concerning the biscuits and gravy
    his mother prepared at church on monthly basis. Dick presented
    the program to our Pastor,who thought it was a great idea. It is now a big deal on the first Sunday of each month.

    I hope all is well with your family.

  2. Dear Mrs. Lewis,
    Very nice blogsite. I really enjoyed the blog about the nursery worker. Most people do not look at the nursery that way. Thank you for putting up this site. Very encouraging.
