Sky Mitchell:

I am happy to report that the healing process continues to go well for Susan Crane.  The second surgery on her foot tendon is scheduled for November 13th and then she will spend another two months at the Heritage rehabilitation center in Longview.  As you can imagine, this gets to be a long time to be away from one’s home.  Susan enjoys being able to go to the store or to visit Bosco (her dog) occasionally.  Would you like to help Susan by giving her a ride?  If so, please give her a call (903-932-1571) to see if something can be worked out.  Thank you!
