Thanks, from a HOFer

I would like to publicly thank the Michigan City Football Hall of Fame Committee for inducting me into the MCFHOH.

I am humbled and astonished by the committee's choice. I am honored to join the ranks of past recipients. Thank you for this lofty award and beautiful trophy!

Grandmothers are special

What happens when four great grandmothers eat together at the same table? All women talk. It is as natural as breathing, but grandmothers are a special breed. We have lived long and experienced much.

Now we are ready to accept others and share our days and thoughts. It is easy to speak about our past and compare joys and pains. We carry many memories of those we lost and rejoice over the happiness we have known and still know about our families.

Adults and new babies fill our hearts. So laughter and tears are close to the surface of an often noisy table.
