    Congratulations Andrea! Steve (Hale) told me he saw you and Jim in O.F.H. for a book signing. (Which by the way, I cannot believe he did not purchase a copy.) Sorry I missed seeing you. So happy to hear that you are fulfilling yet another passion.
    Can’t wait to read it.

      I had a great turnout in the ADK – both at the Adirondack Reader and then the Old Forge Hardware Store. I’m so glad Steve stopped by to say hello! I hope you enjoy the book 🙂

    Words cannot express what is in my heart, my dear Daughter. I only wish Dad were here to share this all with us: he would be as proud of you as I am!

    Love Mom

    My dear daughter, I don’t know what to say except that words cannot express how very proud of you I am and only wish that Dad could have been with us to say the same.

    God bless you and all you do.

    Love, Mom
