Summer road trip Day 10, Saturday, June 11

On Saturday morning, we drove from Phoenix to Tucson where we parked our rig beside the church pastored by Rev. Bob Allen.

“Be at our place around 6:00,” he had said on the telephone earlier. When we arrived, the dining room was set with these charming italian scene dishes. A huge pot of gumbo was brewing in the kitchen.

Jerry and his friend, Jack Hodges, greet each other as the meal was being finished.

After the great dinner, we drove back to our motor home. Tomorrow would be a big day–two services in which to participate.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
