Martha-Lee and I will be on the road for three hours this morning traveling to the funeral of a great Churchman and friend. Our friend served us well here after the Storm and we will miss his wise counsel.

What better memory to leave behind than years of faithful devotion to God through the family of faith in the Church? He was wise, visionary and kind. His death ends a 50 year marriage to a creative woman who moved down here from Maine. In addition to his service to the Church, he was a birder, gardener, and friend to many.

We'll drive to the North East portion of the State, thank God for his life then rush home to mark our Primary ballots.

You could call us before 11 a.m. CDT or in the afternoon. Just saying.

Safe travels and keep the plesant memories of your friend close at heart. Prayers for his spouse.
And, if anyone atthe polls tries to tell you the pens don't mark because they are ivisible and can only be read by a scanner,...
don't believe tehm and demand a pen that works.
You Hot Tranny Mess, You!!!!!

Hey, I managed to call at the right time without reading this first! I hope the service did all it could for everyone involved.
