    Thought for the week: A beautiful face will age and a perfect body will change, but a beautiful soul will always be a beautiful soul.

    Finally heard back from the back doctor. They said there was no concern about small cyst at this time and want to do a repeat MRI of spine in a year. The appointment is already set up. Weather sure has been weird. I am ready for warmer weather for sure.

    Thinking of you wishes go out to Ronnie Booker, Kenneth and Rita Gibson, Billy Duncan, Ronnie Dunn and Jaden Reynolds.
