As soon as word got out about Laura, all those who have loved her so well in Leesburg FLEW into action.
Somebody got the key to the house. Sheets were changed. The house was cleaned. Food was prepared. A refrigerator was rented to store the extra food (!). The grass was cut. The yard was "tidied". Vases of beautifully arranged homegrown flowers were placed in every single room in the house.
Then all those same people anxiously awaited the arrival of the rest of us so lots of hugs could be exchanged.
That is a picture of southern love.... one of many...
And it continues.
