|A Note to the Parish:
I would like to apologize for interrupting communion Sunday when a vertigo attack left me helpless! I am indebted to my friend Tom Folwkes for the immediate medical attention and to Trammell Wells, Lee Dean and Kirk Lovejoy for getting me out of church! It was not an exit this little actress would have chosen! Grateful for all the love and support from my church family.
