Phone Call

I had a phone call from my Aunt Elsie Harris, ( she is 92 years young ) hard to believe. She was pleased she had talked to her nephew, Carleton Stewart, Jr. in Florida. Carl never did have his back surgery as he went into cardiac arrest three times. I hope you are feeling better, and can get back on track. That was scary. Prayers were answered for you. Love and Get Well Wishes from your Maine cousins and family.
