A message from Mildred and her family:

Hi Peggy,

     Wanted to thank everyone for signing the huge Easter card for Mum and getting it over to her.  We spent the morning with her and found it the next day … she loved the signatures from Max and Charlie!!  Would love to get her to church but she keeps falling and ending up at the ER so the staff doesn’t think it’s a very good idea.

      Please keep her in your prayers as I know you have all along.

With love from Mildred, Barb & Sue
