"To the Publishers of Hometown Memories,
Just want you to know how much my family, as well as myself, have enjoyed this book..One Room Schoolin'.. that was published last year. I ordered 4 books for Christmas gifts in 2011 and they were such a hit. My article that was published in the book has had so much feedback and I have heard from some that I had not heard from in years. Thank you for allowing me to publish my story. I have so many stories in me that will never ever be published, but I have lived them and for me that is good enough.
Good luck on these future books that are in the making. They will provide a legacy to many.
