News of others on the periphery of the Interior....

Many of the people who read this will remember Dana who did time with us at Mid America Bible College. Many will also remember that her husband met a tragic and stupid end due to falling out of a tree while hunting. Despite the fact that God takes care of all things, I find that in my limited thinking, there is sometimes little justice in the world. Casey was one of the kindest and most generous people I *ever* knew, and I know quite a few kind and generous people.
Fewer of you will have known that she remarried to another man whom most of us (if any of us) never met. She did say that he was a nice fellow, but his kids really didn't like her. Cest'la'vie, such is the life of "blended" families, as they call them now. The true tragedy here is that he also met a tragic end in a boating accident. My view of justice applies again to this situation.
The thing is, she still loves life, and her kids. She's also getting married again, to someone who's had a crush on her since high school, but was always "the good friend" to her and her boyfriend/husband. Jimmy (and a few if not many people will know him) was always a nice guy, but was a bit socially awkward, as we all were at 18 - 22. He did time in the military overseas, and to her Dana tell it, it did him a lot of good in the confidence department. If Jim reads this, thank you for your time and service.
The date is April 1. She tells me that this is *not* a joke, and I believe her. It's just too ludicrous to not believe.
Dana, I think I speak for all from the Interior: we love you, and wish you all the best, and blessings that God can bestow upon you and your new family. You are richly deserving.

Wait, wait, wait... am I reading this right when I infer you are saying that Dana is marrying Jimmy *Voss*? I must admit, I didn't see that one coming. Jim was always cool, when I knew him (*if* we're talking about Jim Voss... if not, then I don't know who you're talking about). Angie and I offer them our best wishes!

That would be correct sir, the same one you believe you are thinking of: around 6' blonde, cropped hair and glasses. Got severely burned when working on car for some shop when the radiator went ballistic.

I remember *that*... it hurt *me* just hearing about all that boiling anti-freeze. Not to mention *where* he got burned... those parts on *me* warrant extreme protection. Now if I could just keep my dog from waking me up in the morning by tromping all over down there...
