Lee and Charlene: Sanford "Sha" Shahan here....we belonged to Maggie Methodist several years. Always enjoyed knowing Willie and Daisy. We left Maggie in 2006 and moved to the Clyde area. Phyllis and i do extend our heart felt thoughts and prayers to both of you. This is late due to problems finding the guest book link on Garretts site....have spoken with them. Site has recently reworked, but they will take another look.
