I remember being called out during the quiet time at church in Missouri and I turned around and saw you there just waving and welcoming me. Thank you Imogene, for your always kind and beautiful soul that always made me feel so comfortable and welcome. I will miss you. My picture from Washington State is in the Photo album. Many Blessings on your new Journey, Patricia Alanis, Amy Moreno's Mother.
