How beautiful spring is in Valley Home! The sight of livestock grazing peacefully in lush green pastures, lovely white/pink almond blossoms as far as you can see, watching ever changing clouds as they float gently across a brilliant blue sky, hearing a mourning dove coo sweetly in a barn loft, we could go on and on. Such a special place, we are truly blessed to wake up in Valley Home each morning!

*****

Our best wishes go out to neighbor and good friend to so many, Mrs. Nancy Osmundson. Nancy, we miss your beautiful smile and your cheerful spirit! Your Valley Home friends send you their love, and affection!

Speaking of Scott, his high school coach, Darrel Hardcastle has written and published a most amazing book. I just finished reading it and now can’t wait for the sequel. The book is fictional and based on the life of a very talented young man who is faced with much adversity throughout his first years of life. His strong faith and positive attitude eventually has him graduating from high school. Several of Coach Hardcastle’s names from his coaching days at East Union High School are used fictionally throughout the book. Reading the book I recognized many names including my son-in-law, Scott Heaton. Scott graduated from East Union in 1987. Darrel Hardcastle now lives with his family and is head coach at Van Allstyne high school in Van Allystyne, Texas! Very well written, it was great fun to read and is available on Amazon.
