Can just picture HOW ECSTATIC Aunt Nat will be at this moment, due to her reunion with Uncle Al, who was related to Wyatt Earp. They worked with the support group for the Wycliffe Bible Translators Society for many years including in the Philippines during times rife with banditry after Uncle Al left Lockheed. We thought they and our cousins must be the bravest people in the whole world. Before all that, when they were still living in Lithia Springs, Ga. during my youth, we used to visit Aunt Nat and Uncle Al almost every weekend on their farm and fly skyhigh when Uncle Al ran under us and flung us upward on the swing under such an immense oak tree. We loved to ride on the old Ford tractor, climb tall pine trees, madly embrace their stunning collie Samantha, catch fireflies and moonbeams in a jar, and fill ourselves to bursting with corn on the cob and other goodies. Ending up with homemade ice cream and blackberry cobbler. Strangely, I happen to have some all natural ice cream and blackberries in the refrigerator right now. Time for a final salute!
