We all got together on the Sunday before Christmas. There were two daughters out of three that are left out of 12 kids of the late Jake and Eula Shaw. One of the daughters could not make it. There were less of the grandkids and great-grandkids this year because of the weather but hope next year will be better. Our hope and prayers go out to our cousin, Gene, who is in the hospital in Springfield.
As Eula said, “ring a round the Christmas tree.” The Shaw family would like to say Merry Christmas and a very, very Happy New Year for 2017.
