CORRESPONDENCE from DICK and MARJORIE WALKER...We so enjoyed the Rotary mums which we have been admiring since they were sent. We send our appreciation for all the cards, communications, and especially the prayers of members and their families. Tuesday is a big day because we will find out whether the last treatments will have solved a problem of fluid around the lung. If not, another procedure will be necessary. MARJORIE is gaining strength and is in physical rehab which has been a Godsend in her recovery. Thanks again for the great support. Good to see BYRON ANDERSON back from FL.
