An Angel Pin for Gen Stratton

Virginia Kernaghan gave an angel pin gift to her friend Gen Stratton because she is an Angel in Virginia's life.

Gen Stratton
by Virginia Kernaghan

GenStratton1aGen has been my friend for many years. During the summer she lives in Iowa, and in the winter, she lives in Alvin where all five of her children live. I first met her when she came with her daughter Julie to the Sunday School Class that my husband used to teach. The next year, her husband Harvey also came with them to Sunday School and church, and we all enjoyed being together. We met them for lunch or coffee, or had them in our home for a meal often. It was such fun visiting with them that when they went back to Iowa in winters, we really missed seeing them. Since they loved Wolf Brand chili as much as we did, we often gave them a Care package of chili to take back with them to enjoy when in Iowa.

Now, even though our husbands are no longer living, we still get together often and write letters to one another. It is always such fun to find a greeting card from Gen in the day's mail. As a former nurse, Gen can relate to health problems that I or my children might have. She loves her family and friends, and is an Angel to all of us.
