The party this year was great, inside the Mercy lounge was small so
the whole thing felt just like a family reunion. I am stealing Beths
words because that was her remark.  Lorrie Morgan was there with
Tracy along with Rick Huckabee.  Sadly Joe was out sick and we
sure did miss him. Flip was there and of course Chuck , Tommy, and
Darin. It wasnt the same though without Joes fiddle.
COURTNEY AND GABE PICKING ME UP AND THEN WE ARE SO HAPPY TO BE AT THE
AIRPORT, ON OUR WAY
