    I'm on vacation this week. Unfortunately a lot of my plans have changed thanks to rivers still being high. So delaying a couple trips, just leaves me open for honey do's this week.lol

    Last week I received a notice I had a package at post office. They couldn't find it. Was asked over the weekend if I got the package. It was sent from PHWFF in the Erie/PA programs. They found it and I picked it up today. I opened it up to find this.

    I was in shock, then tears. A man, Tom Herr, who didn't know me made this for me. He volunteers with PHWFF and knows work I do with program. Skip Hughes with that Erie program got the package to me. The pic doesn't do the fly justice. Simply beautiful and a perfect tribute to my fallen brother in law Jay.

    Had to share.
