Friends, family and our walk with God have been constant sources of support and comfort. Charlotte is the kind of friend that makes life a better place, she is a beautiful christian woman.
A few weeks ago Dick got a phone call from Charlotte. Dick and Charlotte have a good time bantering back and forth about her love for the University of Kentucky Wildcats and Dick's love of the University of Louisville Cardinals...huge school rivals here in the beautiful state of Kentucky. They don't agree about politics much either.
Nevertheless, doesn't matter a bit! We both love, love, love Charlotte! Charlotte is our friend forever in this life and forever in the next.
Getting back to the phone call. Charlotte wanted to know if Dick could use a couple of tickets to the Masters Tournament practice round in Augusta Georgia......did he?!! Oh wowwee, wowwee wow!! Dick has been on the golf course his whole life. His mom and dad both lifetime golfers passed on the love of golf to Dick...it was their "church" really.
Getting tickets through the lottery system had eluded poor Dick and watching The Masters on TV was the closest he could get to the tournament. Until this moment in time when Charlotte said those magic words.....Would you like some tickets to the tournament?
A nice guy snapped this photo for us as we prepared to leave the course after having the best day....we were exhausted, but oh so content and happy.
Dick said for that one day, he didn't think about anything, it was like being in heaven....he walked and walked to see every bit of Augusta National Golf Course. What an absolutely gorgeous course....nary a weed, everything just perfect!
So Charlotte, thank you so much for your generous spirit.
Your gift was the best! Just the best!
