We have had a great weekend! Allen and I drove to Burlington, Vermont to see Andrea (our neice) in a play. The other time spent was visiting with her. The play was "Twelfth Night" by William Shakespeare. It was a fantastic production! Andrea played Maria, and she play it with wit, fancy and tremendous talent. Her voice is like a songbird. Oh, how I wish you could hear it. I am sure it would awaken your senses as it did ours.

Andrea is smart, heartfelt, and beautiful inside and out. She cares for her family and friends, and puts them in a pot of love...and she nurtures that pot of love. She's quick to smile, and also has much empathy for others in their time of need. I have always thought of Andrea as a shining star, and she is... to all who know her.

Just look at that smile!
