Now and then I go back to Biloxi

Whenever I feel brave…

May 17th was my father’s birthday. I went to visit his grave in nearby La Feria, Texas.

Twenty-eight years ago my parents were “Winter Texans” down here in the Rio Grande Valley of south Texas. My father was cutting the grass on a lawn tractor at Frontier Baptist Mission, where they were helping out.
