    Hello everyone, I hope this finds you all doing well. I had a lady from Big Clifty call and share with me she had a wonderful Sunday. Lena Aubrey was happy her son, Donald, and his wife, Susan, came down from Louisville and their daughter, Beverly, and her son, for a good visit. Lena also shared that a friend of hers, Doris Petty, comes and visits with her a lot. Lena was very happy about the visits she has had. This was the first time I had spoken with Lena. She is very pleasant and I hope to hear more about her and her company.
