Well...... it was decided.  NO!!!!! 

Elliott Nursing Home
Sandy Hook, Kentucky

Barbara went to visit Jenny Jo Patton, a fan of Matthew's,
and presented her with "A Moment in Time" 

I received a request from Mary Lewis, who lives in Columbus, Ohio, that her sister was a huge fan of Matthew's and could she purchase one of my books for her. I took it a step further and traveled to the nursing home to see her in person and present her with my book. Mary and her husband also drove from Columbus to meet me at the nursing home.

It gave me such joy to be able to do this.

Jenny Jo surprised me with a gift! The "out of print" history book on Carter County, Kentucky.
I had been looking everywhere for this book and what a great surprise!!

Jenny Jo passed away peacefully that summer in August, 2010
