  4. Thank you for sharing!!… I have read the book and it is a very good book (also visited with Rosaliene)!.. Shawn and I have a lot in common and brought back memories of “the good ole days” (some were not so good)… thank you for sharing your thoughts with all of us… (how is Matilda doing by the way?.. 🙂 )… 🙂

    Until we meet again…
    May the love that you give
    Always return to you,
    That family and friends are many
    And always remain true,
    May your mind only know peace
    No suffering or strife,
    May your heart only know love and happiness
    On your journey through life.
