Which? Perhaps you dressed and made the effort To go to Church today because you feel an inner need for strength along the way. You probably found an inspiration From the service and the songs And realized that you found something For which you tired heart longs But was your faith left on the seat When you stepped from the pew Or do you plan to keep it working All week in what you do? -Pat Vardell

Nicest Gift: Bicycle from Bob when she turned 15. It was her first bike.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Acker family in the loss of your mom and grandmother. I have such wonderful fond memories of Mrs. Acker not only as secretary at Nathaniel Hawthorne but as the mother of long time friend and school mate, Katherine. May you feel the Lord's presence and comfort during this time and just rejoice in knowing she is in with our Lord at this very moment.

To the most kind, loving and devoted Grandmother in the world; I love you so much and can't express enough gratitude for the years of unconditional love and endless hours of time you spent with my sister and I. Your ability express love to anyone was truly a gift that I will always admire. I will always cherish the memories I have of the time I spent with you.
