July 31, 2014 - To all my wonderful Eastern Star Friends: Thank you for all your prayers, cards, notes, and calls during my recent illness. My surgery was a lot harder on this "old body" than the previous three stints I was living with for the past several years. I am recovering nicely and trying to do all that the doctor says (believe it or not). It is a wonderful feeling to get a "new lease on life," so to speak. God has been good to me and I am so blessed. I truly appreciate the many friendships I have made through this great organization. MY LOVE AND THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE REMEMBERED ME. I'll see you along the trails this coming year as Frank serves as Grand Marshal. I am so happy for him. Love to all, Agnes Wooters, P.G.M.
