Chapter News and Updates:
It is with sadness that I must inform you of the passing of one of our members. Paul Weis died on Saturday April 24th due to complications from a broken hip he suffered in a fall at his home. Paul was just 1 month short of his 79th birthday. Paul and Valerie were married 54 years. Paul served Mended Hearts for many years in Austin and Temple. He was an Accredited Visitor and past President of Chapter 12.
The month of May has brought us much needed rain. But look at those weeds!
To all you mothers – Happy Belated Mother’s Day.
