I would like to thank all of you for your Prayers and support for us with the loses we had in our family, specifically our daughter Laura and mu brother-in-law Michael Curry.  Your telephone calls, emails, texts and appearance at her home going ceremony meant so much to my wife and me.  God bless you for the Love you shared with us. Our brother John Stewart is in need of Prayers.  At our Board meeting we spoke about the need for us to keep in contact with each other.  We decided to have Virtual meetings until it is safe for us to meet in person.  We would like to share the things the Board discussed and complete our planning for the year.
