Wishing everyone a joyous New Year. I pray and hope that everyone will remain safe and take care of themselves. I know Covid 19 will take you out of this world. But there are many more forces that will enable you to make the transition from earth to another home.

Marty Shepard and Nathalie had the family over on Christmas Eve for a time of joy and thanksgiving. The food that was served was delicious and tasty. Nathalie had prepared a pineapple upside down cake, Spanish potato salad, plantain lasagna, tea, and spiral cut ham. We were trying to eat up the pineapple slices and cherries that was cooked with the ham. My contribution was collard greens and sweet potato pudding. Nathalie’s prepared food was delicious. I am always a good cook, so mine was good also.
