I visited Dean Jackson last week. She looks great and we had quite a talk. 

Easter Sunday was busy for churches, special prayers, communion, altar flowers in remembrance of loved ones and praises to God. The Baring Baptist Church provided a children’s program, adults’ Easter performance, communion and blessings for all the shut-ins. The men cooked bacon, eggs, sausages, toast, jams and jellies and pancakes. We’ve got them all trained! 

Fran Mulcahy, Pat Townsend and I enjoyed dinner at the Friendly Restaurant on Easter. It was very busy. We saw some friends. It was a sunny afternoon traveling down and back.  I Received many Easter cards from relatives and friends as well as gifts and baked goods.  It was nice to be remembered on this special occasion.

The Easter Choir Cantata at Second Baptist Church on Sunday evening was wonderful and a good turnout. I could listen for hours.
