"What a great Fair! Thank you for sending the photos and all the Alum for making this a perfect event. I know many hours of work, behind the scenes and on the day itself made it a success. Thank you one and all.
Sister Rose is still convalescing. She gets up twice a day to walk about 12 steps but does not have a lot of energy. Miriam Xavier is great with a sharp mind in tact. Ann CArol has just returned to the Center from Monrovia, Corinne is still serene and loving.
Love and prayers
