The Family Tree - August/September 2003
Super Postal Heroes

The financial news we see on TV comes home to us at The Family Tree!  Rather, our donations DON'T come in like they did for years and years.  This makes our future really scary.

We could not have published this paper without the "above and beyond" contributions from our wonderful readers.

Our Super Postage Heroes this time include Robert Densmore Brill and Grace K. Kenmotsu from Keauhou, Hawaii; Joyce Krimminger from Charlotte, North Carolina; Donald E. & Dorothy A. McPherson of Roswell, Georgia; Mrs. Alexander Ogston of Tenafly, New Jersey; Mrs. Kathryn L. Reynolds of Claremore, Oklahoma; Dr. Ann Molleson of Columbus, Ohio; Wallace & Margaret Downey of Southlakd, Texas; Gene R. Montgomery of Montgomery, Texas; John Robert Godwin and Matthew Godwin of Daytona Beach, Florida; Mr. & Mrs. Paul McCabe of Weaver, Alabama; Jane Beall of Dublin, Georgia; Samuel McCray of Corpus Christi, Texas; Claudette Harrell of Newark, Texas; Mr. Duncan A. Bruce of New York City; Dr. & Mrs. Frank McCook of Lagrange, Georgia; W.M. McKenzie of Kings Mountain, North Carolina;  Richard Provost of Creston, Iowa;  Phyllis Pladsen of White Bear Lake, Minnesota;  Mrs. Edwina T. Goodard of San Diego, California and Dwan Hightower and her Dream Catchers Publishing from Mexico Beach, Florida.  My life-long friend, Marti Van Horne of Raleigh, North Carolina has helped too with a Super Postage Hero contribution!  Thanks, Marti! Love you!  Many thanks to Charles & Geraldine Osborn of Winston-Salem, North Carolina and Mrs. Dawn E. MacDonald of Santa Clara, California; and Gayle Barrett of Coconut Creek, Florida.  You amaze me with your kindness.

Frederick Shaw of Blowing Rock, North Carolina and Deborah Novacek of Stockton, California both  used our PayPal option on the Internet to become Super Postage Heroes! 

Many thanks to Ida C. Scott of Austin, Texas. Thanks to Rebecca Huie of Morrow, Georgia; Mr. & Mrs. R. L. Terpening of Fairburn, Georgia; William & Barbara Morris of Demorest, Georgia; Bernice M. DePalma of Ormond Beach, Florida; and Ms. Sue Lee of Pecos, Texas.  You all are wonderful and you are Super Postage Heroes!.

We have some Super Duper Postage Heroes this time as well.  We surely do appreciate the most generous contributions from Bruce J. McKendrick of Morro Bay, California; Al & Doris Henderson of Tallahassee, Florida; Bob & Rob Fletcher from Iron Mountain Press in New Milford, New York; Mrs. Phillip H. Paradise of Mableton, Georgia; Mr. & Mrs. J. Bruce Patterson of Newry, South Carolina; Alta & Chuck Bearman of Valdosta, Georgia; Mr. & Mrs. Walt McClelland of Panama City, Florida; Almont Lindsey of Roswell, Georgia; Dewey A. Murdick of Berrien Springs, Michigan; William P. Farrington of Harahan, Louisiana; Mr. Charles Yoakum of Covington, Tennessee; Glenn B. Daughton of Cocoa Beach, Florida; K. Campbell of Huntington Beach, California; Billie Faye Evans of Garland, North Carolina and Richard Buckelew of Medina, Texas.

We do have Super Duper Duper Postage Heroes this time too!  Many thanks to Patricia Adams of Farmington, Minnesota and DeAnn Steely of Huntsville, Texas.

Very special thanks to The St. Andrew Society of Tallahassee, Florida who sent us a MOST generous postage contribution! Our friends in Tallahassee have proven  to be real friends through thick and thin (and we haven't had any "thick" yet!).

How can I thank Inez Boothe of Stone Mountain, Georgia?  Inez sent along a wonderful and most generous contribution to help me travel to Games and events next year.  I promise, I couldn't do it without Inez!  Thank you!

If anyone ever has any "exrtra money" and would like to help with travel...your help is appreciated.  I make speeches and earn as much of the expense as possible...but it still costs a LOT to go to places I need to go.

Opening mail today, I almost fainted when I opened a note from sweet friends Drs. Al & Mary Jean Simmons.  There was such a kind and generous check for postage that I truly almost cried.  Now, I think we'll have enough to do this paper!  Thank you Al & Mary Jean!!!

Please, folks, if your name has been left off this list, let me know.  We've had a problem with assistants (I feel like Murphy Brown!)...and I keep finding things - like Easter eggs - hidden all over the office.
