Bunn, 345 East Baker Street, this has been no ordinary
Christmas vacation. It passed well out of that realm
Christmas morning when Hyatt, tossing peables and idly
kicking what ever might catch his eye along the railroad
tracks near the sale barn on Clayton Street spied a
garter snake scurrying toward a ditch.

Our Dear Hyatt,
Just a note to let you know that you are in our
thoughts and prayers daily.
You will be glad to know that several of our nurse

Aid Corps to life. Materials have been updated and I
think we are all ready for action.
Take care, dear friend, and may our God Bless you.
With our love.

You know sometimes it's hard to take the risk of
truly caring about another person, but I'm really
glad I took that risk with you-
From the very beginning you understood exactly how
I felt. And in time, I realized that loving you
could only make me feel warm and safe and good-
That's why this spring I want to thank you for your
gentleness and caring-
and especially for being the wonderful person that
I'm so very happy to love, HAPPY EASTER,
Love always, Virginia

the Dr. office.
