    Debbie,
    So sorry to hear of Mike’s passing. It was so nice to see you guys last summer. I’ll miss the online Scrabble games. Prayers and hugs …

    Deb, Was just reading my travel diary and totally forgot this entry: “Debbie was unhappy with her old cell phone. And as we know, she has some grasping issues. She happened to lose her grip one morning and the phone slipped out of her hand. Then, Mike happened to run over it… with his TRUCK! Just one of many examples of TEAMWORK by the Elcherts for sure and certain!” Thinking daily of you Debbie. Rest easy, Mikey.
