Anyway - Monday I sent him an email telling him that we are leaving. So we will return to the church we previously attended. It still isn't the church I want. And it will never be. The pastor who made it so great is not only gone from the church, he is gone from the world. I still miss him. I worked so closely with him as organist for years. He died a couple of years from pancreatic cancer. We all thought he would have a massive heart attack to kill him. He would joke that he and his cardio doc couldn't remember how many shunts he had!
But we are going back. It took until last night for the pastor to acknowledge we are gone. Guess we weren't as important, but he will surely miss our money!
Wanted to share the most current picture of Katie. It is such a good one. Her personality just shines through. And we will be in Riverside, California March 13! One more step toward the national water polo team,, and perhaps the Olympics - who knows.
