A message from Bonnie Shaw:

We have learned in a very real way that you cannot take each day for granted. On May 11th, Steve is having a birthday.

We would love for our family and friends to just get together and share some laughs. So, Steve and I are going to go down to the VFW (Waterville) on that day around 6:30 p.m.

We will bring some kind of food with us. We are hoping that family and friends will do the same and just come out and celebrate being alive.

How wonderful that our family has two Steves that God has blessed! I hope we can have a crowd to share some laughs, because that is what we all need!

Good news
