Merry Christmas !!
Joe and I would like to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. As you can see by the photo, we had a white Christmas. It snowed all day and created quite a beautiful day. However, it wasn't in Tennessee. Our family spent Christmas in Colorado where our daughter and son-in-law live. We hope that wherever you spent your Christmas, you had a wonderful day.
Also, we want to say that our hearts go out to the family of our friend, Marvin Gideon who passed away suddenly this past week. They have been in our thoughts and prayers and we would appreciate your prayers for them, too. Marvin was a great musician who was very gifted, generous with his time and a good friend to many. If you have been to Dumplin Valley on various occasions, I'm sure you have seen him or heard him playing his mandolin either on stage or in a jam. The bluegrass community lost a shining star when he left us.
Again, let us say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
