    I send my love & prayers to the family of Aunt Alta. My family loved her and feels sorrowful that she has passed on. But rejoicing because we know she had put her trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior. I will be unable to travel from Texas, my sister Bonnie is here with us now and she came home yesterday from the hospital, Helen is in India, so I must stay and take care of Bonnie. We ask the Lord to comfort each of you.
