 Thank you to everyone for your prayers on behalf of our dear Vera. Sadly, Grandma passed away last evening.


 Rest in peace, dear Veronica Bourne Butler/Cole. You will be sorrowfully missed.



Normally, I wouldn't post anything about my work at this time, but two ladies were kind enough to interview me this week, and I am extremely grateful.

Rie McGaha generously posted our interview on her blog this morning. Please stop by when you can.

Christine HINZMANN-SKOREPA, staff reporter for The Citizen posted her interview online.

Thank you, Marie and Christine.

  1. I'm so sorry for your loss. I was just thinking about her yesterday too. It's always so difficult for the ones left behind. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers. I like to think of death as in our loved ones making the transition to angels...and always watching over us.

  6. So sorry for your loss. I bet she'd swat you if you didn't mention breaking news and interviews, so I hope you don't feel mis-placed guilt over that.

    Such a tough time. I hope all are doing okay.
