Missy and Phil. Sorry and grateful thoughts for this year. Sometimes the Lord just bombards us with challenging obstacles. Been there, done that. I was sad about word of your Mother @ April. I’ve lived in Los Angeles and now Austin my entire adult life after University. I think always of our school district. Our villages far and wide. Bless you two. Mom, Dad
and Chris be with you
