Long Time No Talk

Thank you for all the kind thoughts sent my way and to my family during the last few weeks. We really appreciate it and have absolutely felt those prayers. Y’all are the best. Truly. So Harold Camping and his followers state that the world as we know it is ending Saturday. Now, I didn’t get […]
