We will be praying for the family. Sorry we can't be there. Sandy fell and broke her shoulder and I don't feel like I should leave her right now. We have many great memories of camping, playing cards, playing golf, going to the Grand Old Opry and other events. There are also many memories of times spent at Cummins working and also having LOTS of fun there. Please stay in touch.
