A GRAND TIME:  Recalling My Life

            I want to thank Dorothy Weir, proprietress of Much to Tell Personal History Services, LLC, for taking all the bits and pieces of my ramblings and making them into a narrative for the ages.  She patiently sorted through those Red Cross letters and filed them chronologically.  They were a messy nightmare, having been tossed helter-skelter in a drawer for years.
            Everyone needs a Dorothy to write it all down—to help discover where you come from and what happened in your lifetime.

MY LIFE: Faith Flows Through It

            Many thanks to personal historian Dorothy Weir, proprietor of Much to Tell Personal History Services, for assistance in this project.  I spent many years writing and collecting thoughts and documents, contemplating that one day I would put it all in a book.  It was with Dorothy’s encouragement and professional help that I have realized my dream.

UNDER DIVINE PROTECTION: Reflections on a Blessed Life

            I gratefully acknowledge my niece, Dorothy Weir, for her assistance in creating this book. Many times, while telling of my life experiences in conversations and in the pulpit, I’ve said, “I ought to write a book.” It was with Dorothy’s insistence and assistance that I was able to follow through.
