And she loved dads voice reading the Bible toher.

Id like to invite him out for supper and anight. And Aunt Irene thought it just too funny to find Janesplitting kindlings. It wasso new and gorgeous it made everything look faded and countrified. I dont know what your mother would have done without me manya time, poor child.
