    Norman, Michaele, Stacey and Will: Love and sympathy to you and all of your family at this sad time. We shared many years of fun Wednesday night suppers, great music and worship at First Methodist Church (most of them with Mrs. Edenfield), and a few 4-H programs in Clay County. I will always be grateful. Love, Susan Spalding
