  • Quotes

    • Opening Narration: Sometimes people's lives would become entwined with ours for a brief time, and then because of change or growth or the passage of time, their lives would take different paths and we would never see or hear of them again. But there were occasions when people we had known in the past would reappear. I remember one such occasion, and it took us completely by surprise.

    • Closing Narration: In time Wade earned enough through his wages at the mill to open his own woodcarving shop in the house he had long planned to build. Now that he was able to follow the work he loved most he became the husband and the father he had always planned to be on the day he and Vera were married.
