Dear Cousin Jimmy Ray and Kathy of the NOA,
We must hurry and get this to you before the NOA reunion.. Do you remember us when we attended the reunion in Savannah Georgia? We really enjoyed that very special time and meeting all of you there!
We bought tickets to fly to Texas for the reunion last year, but bad health issues forced us to cancel. Since things are not better, and old age hinders us, I must confess that we most likely cannot plan any more trips. We would like to attend next year in my beloved North Carolina and to be so close to my roots in Gates, Herford and Northampton Counties..
We are not complaining.. God has us in the palm of HIS hands and "….. for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day." 2 Timothy 2:12 .. We give our loving God the Glory – so we go forward day by day secure in His Grip!..
Have another great NOA get together and let us know all about it! .. God Bless all of you and have fun..
With more love and prayers
Katherine Odom and Harold Keefer
