The best present of all was from my Uncle Ralph

(Continued)

I guess I’m telling this story ‘cause some presents do not have to be expensive, and at the time, may not have meant a great deal, but to me, it continues to be a BIG deal. Just maybe, you have a story to tell, and perhaps this has jogged your memory.

In closing, may I take this opportunity to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas, trusting all of you will remember whose birthday it is, and taking the time to thank Him for all the presents He has bestowed on us in our lifetime.
