(November 30, 2020) I am writing this two weeks before Thanksgiving 2020. As of this writing, it has been a very eventful year and month.

Last Saturday, we had our memorial service for Bill Johnson, a faithful husband, father and grandfather.  Eva, one of Bill’s grandchildren said: “It’s too bad there isn’t a phone in heaven!” Now maybe I have heard something like this said before, but I can’t remember anyone expressing it quite like that!
