We had to make a unexpected quick trip to Belleville on Friday. Paula Klein, Prudy's best friend for 58 years, passed away last Wednesday. She had been ill for a month or so. She was a special lady and that was verified by the hundreds and hundreds of people that showed up to honor her and to pay their respects. She will be missed.
We are back at Sheri's home until Wednesday and then we will be headed back to Belleville again. We stayed at our friends, Jack and Rosey's while we were there for the funeral. We will be staying with them again when we go back.
Our plan is to leave Belleville on Friday and drive to Mike's house in Tennessee. We will leave there on the 23rd and try to get to my dad's on Christmas eve. Our total miles for this trip looks like it is going to surpass 5000 miles! This is probably going to be the longest road trip we have ever taken. We made a decision that anymore trips we make back this way will be during any season but winter.
