Hello Jamie and Billy!
What a treat to find a comment from you on my blog. How are you? From your blog, it sounds like all is well. You have three beautiful grandchildren (wow! 3 all at once!) and I've had fun sneaking peaks at their parent's blogs as well. Isn't this a great way to stay connected? You're wonderful and I will forever remember you. Take care and keep in touch.
