My mother left behind many old photo albums, complete with dates, names, and captions. We use these to take Dad back in time to revisit his Vintage Memories. Despite having dementia, he still enjoys thinking about their early days.

Lessons my father taught me, either by example or just plain telling me - he was a teacher all the time.

Please pray for my brother in law Tracy, still waiting for a kidney transplant and now in hospital for this:

Pray for healing and protection, as well as recovery.
