We had a delightful Holiday Season and hope you did. We
journeyed to Ohio to be with our daughter’s family, the David
Gilsons. They have a small one in kindergarten, Ronnie, plus the
great granddaughter, Melodi, who lives only a few miles away.

for future use. This is Elmer’s desires and I’d like to
please him if possible, as well as myself.
The reunions are just around the corner and we’ll hope to be
