Announcement

The announcement below is from Pat Groeper-one of the great, loving angels I have met along this journey.  Pat is a colon cancer survivor and her husband, Burl, battles lymphoma.  Pat is one of the true warriors against this disease.  She takes part in many cancer events raising awareness and money to help in the battle of this disease.  Recently she even volunteered on the “front lines” becoming a hospice nurse.  Please give consideration to attending this event-the garden was partly built in honor of me.
