Before getting to business, I would like to take a moment to thank the Mississippi daughters for their love and prayers these past few weeks as our family has dealt with the sudden illness and loss of my husband’s precious father, Joseph McNamara.
Ray and I have been overwhelmed at your thoughtfulness and your support. It has meant more than you can imagine to get home each day from helping his Mother and find the many loving cards and letters you’ve sent to us. I especially want to thank the daughters from the Ashmead Chapter who attended Joe’s Memorial Mass in Vicksburg, MS.
Friends invited us to take a reprieve at their home in Colorado these past few days and we are finally getting back on our feet. Though we have thoroughly enjoyed this time to catch our breath, I’m ready to head back home and begin my chapter visits!
Due to the lack of mountain cell service, I went down the mountain for the first time today to find many of you needing follow up information for your yearbooks.
