    I will be driving a car from Wells Branch to Sun City & Liberty Hill to pick up 2 others & have room for one more (2 if UR small). Leaving my house around 11:30. My # is 512-751-8955


    Many thanks to the dozen PGR that braved the sub freezing temps and icy roads to make it to Johnson City for SP4 Walker's service yesterday.

    The family was moved and very appreciative. As is always the case, we made a difference.

    Until next time!
