Randy Happy to hear that and that you had a wonderful day I sure miss those times myself guess because I will always be a kid at heart and last year I volunteered helping little kids color eggs and so forth and it was a lot of fun.

Happy to hear about your Easter Tammy.

Glad that eveerthing went great for you. My kids got to spend the weekend at their grandma's. My wife and I went to meek up w/ the kids at grandma's house . we exchange Easter gifts, I hid eggs around the house property for my kids to find. then we ate lunch and played go fish, old maid , and slap jack w/ my kids. it was a fun & busy day

thank you TERRENCE

Comment by Tammi Zavardino yesterday

Hope everyone had a nice Easter I knew I would have no one to spend it with and was feeling a little down but this one lady was spending it with her family and invited me to go along I didn't want to interfere in her family time but she insisted and it turned out to be a really nice day. After a nice dinner we went and saw the movie "Is heaven real" and it was a really incredible movie! If you haven't seen it you should because it is a real eye opener. Hope all is well and take care.
