    Oh Terri. I just saw this, and it’s too late. I don’t have email at home, and haven’t read the LJWorld for several days.

    I live in Cottonwood Falls now. I have a friend’s daughter who works at Medical Lodges..I wish I would have known she was in there. I’ve lost all of you over the years, and didn’t have good enough info way back the last time I saw you.

    I think of you, wonder what’s up. It was so nice to get to talk with your mom, when my mom died.

    Drop me a line if you ever care to.
    Love to all,
    Tira Kay
