    Great memories of Woodside and Community. Shared, many special events with Katie. I never got around to giving her my “secret” recipe for my chili hot dog sauce. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Kathy and boys. God bless you Andy as you lead your grandmothers memorial service. What an honor! Wish we could be there with you, but circumstances prevent it. Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow! He is our hope and reason for being.
