Bible study was held in the church Monday morning and Linda heard that Kyle Grindstaff’s condition has improved. He can talk and move his fingers and toes, but he has a lot of broken bones. Word was received that Mary Lou England is getting along okay. She is sure missed at Bible study. Thursday Linda worked at the school for a few hours and met a new little girl. She’s a sweetheart and her name is Genesis. Linda has always enjoyed coloring with her grandchildren and this gives her a chance to do that again. It relieves stress ... try it!
