We did Branson on there 25th and had a great time. Helen and I stayed a out of trouble. John always said glad we don't live near each other or we would be in trouble. Always lots of fun.
We did the train ride and while we walked around, Bob and John found an ice cream place and sat eating waiting for us..

Love to my wonderful sister in law, Helen. Mom S was so glad that we all got along together. Love You
Love to ALL Love Lorraine
