Linda is giving a big hug to one of our dear older members of the Bedford Branch, Sister Lucy Strawn, on her 85th birthday. Sister Strawn is one of the sisters in the branch that we are assigned to as Home Teachers.
She is widowed and now lives with her daughter Betty, who called and invited us to a surprise birthday party for her mother this past Tuesday evening.

We pass this home on our way to visit one of our Home Teaching families who live east of Bedford, south of the Salem/Lynchburg Turnpike. This photo does not do justice to the beautiful setting. The home sits on a prominence that gives views for miles in all directions, something you don't find frequently in this forested countryside.
