To our friends, fans, family and everyone who views our site:
I am sending this e-mail in regards to my mother. I want you to know how hard it is for her to view the web site right now. She is really in deep grief since my father's death. We do everything we can with her, but she still wants to be alone. She really is having a hard time, after all she and dad were married 43 years at the time of his death. Hospice is helping her in dealing with her grief and they say it is not easy to get over this, they tell her she needs to be with family and friends. Right now she is having a hard time doing either. We ask that you keep her in your prayers and that you will ask that he help her during this time of grieving. As you know my dad did not have to work much. Mom carried the load for him-just as she always has. I guess that is the indian in her. My dad told my mom if the sight got to be a bit too much for her to let people know she was going to take a break from it and that is what she is doing. She is trying to figure out how he did some of the things he did. My dad was great on the computer and all my mother really does is work with it doing data entry, making spread sheets and the stuff we don't really like to do. She has really tried hard to get things going on the site and she just wants to ask that you be patient with her.
She will be attending opry's and hopes to see many of you, when she does. So if you could just be kind and make her laugh and be happy-Well we her kids and everyone who loves her would really appreciate this.
Call her sometime, she still likes going to dine and would enjoy company at anytime. She just asks that you be patient in regards to web site and who knows maybe we will get it going after awhile.
She wants me to thank Terry, Annie, Bill, Louise, John, Mary, Brenda, Bill, Dennis, Cindy, Vance, The Stranger Creek Band and all of her fans-friends. She wants you to know she appreciates everything you have done for her and she loves each and everyone of you. Of course she told me to tell all of the opry's, band members and everyone out there she appreciates you too. She doesn't want me to leave anyone out and I hope that I haven't. Special thanks to Pastor Carl and Sharon too.
Keep her in your prayers.
