I dont know if anyone will ever read this...but as i sat outside this evening staring at the full October moon...Boots Houchens came into my thoughts!  I knew Boots in the late 70's early 80's in Salem, Va.  I was in my late 20's early 30's...she would have been in her 50's...and the two of us shared an incredible friendship.  She gave me a gorgeous handmade basket that I still have.  We would share meals and time just hanging out talking.  I moved away and we lost touch.  I feel so badly that I never contacted her.  Why she appeared  to me tonight as I was staring at the moon I will never know.  I decided to google her name to see if I could locate her and of course found her obituary.  I offer my deep condolences to her family.  She was an incredible woman.  I was so happy to see that she had remarried and had 3 grandchildren.  One very special woman!
