On Wednesday, July 3rd, Janet Bond, who now makes her home at the Hoosier Boy, enjoyed having Pastor and Mrs. Steve Ward and Juanita Detmer visit her and share lunch. She enjoys her new home and the friends who are now a part of her life but misses her friends from Concord, especially her former view from her front window of the church and the farming activities that went on in Egypt Bottom. She is thankful to feel safe in her new home. Craig and Jon Bond visit her often.
It was nice getting a letter from Janet. She was a great neighbor.
