Barbara is retired from the Marines. I've asked for prayers for her before. She has cancer and wasn't expected to make it to last Christmas; yet, here she is, putting along and working a couple days a week at Camp Atterbury. Barbara is 52, but she says she's just 7 (just add the two numerals together, she says). She and her mom are basically helping each other along.
I brought with me a cache of photos I found among my mother's papers: old Shirley family photos, mostly. I was hoping that Aunt C. could put names to the faces; if she can't then no one still in this world probably can. She managed to name a few. All in all, it was a good day.
As I was getting ready to leave, I took a picture of them in Aunt Clarice's kitchen.
