Dear family by Eileen
|Dear Mama, Loved that story. You know how I always enjoy a good cry. It is hard for me to keep up with writing on Rosenose. I have so many eloquent aunts, uncles and cousins. I often find myself at a loss for what to say. Just know that I love you all so much and much thanks to James for establishing this site and keeping it going. It is a blessing to this family and keeps all these truly special people in touch with each other. I have always been honored to be a part of this family.
It was wonderful to spend the evening with Sandra and Jim. Sandra was in great spirits and was her true jovial self. She has the best sense of humor in the world. It is always special to be with someone who laughs like she does. I loved reading your letter, Sandra. It made me think of grandma with your reference to 'pretty things'. Keep your beautiful and strong attitude!
I have been busy getting the girls ready for school. Caty goes off to college for the first time a week from today. She will be at Hendrix in Conway, Arkansas. It gives me some peace to know all the Benton's will be looking after her :). Jackie has senior pictures today and I am trying to get my classroom ready for a new year. Love, prayers and best wishes to all! Eileen
