Carl asked that we remember Howard in our prayers and send our get well cards to him at the rehab center. Could you get this information to Matts for online mail and also add it to the next Bulletin.

Let’s hope and pray that Howard will have a speedy recovery, so that he can get back to living his next 100 years. Please send me Howard’s and Carl’s e-mail addresses, so I can include them in our mailing list. You are never too old to use the Internet!
