Dan Strahan

April 4, 2018

Many years ago, Betty rode to East Texas with Barb and I to visit my sister Vera and family at Christmas. As we were traveling back to Houston on Highway 59 it began to snow. The snow continued along with blowing wind and we were seeing multiple accidents. At this point I was getting nervous so I told Betty Marie if she had any pull with the man upstairs now was the time to pray and she did. It was about 5 minutes later and the conditions changed radically, the snow stopped coming down and the wind quit blowing. The sun actually came out. Needless to say she proved her point and I have always known she had a reservation in heaven as soon as her time on earth was done. My sister was special, if you are reading these comments you already know that.
