Greetings to my brave wife, the rock lady of Sullivan MO. You have inspired us with your positive attitude while fighting parkinsons and enduring deep brain stimulation surgery. You have touched the lives of many people with your gifts of lucky rocks. This is for you! My Lucky Woman I said to a squirrel, "What is that you are carrying?" and he said, "It is my lucy rock; isn't it pretty?" I held it and said, "Indeed." I said to God, "What is this woman?" And He said, "It is my lucky rock; isn't she wondrous?" Yes Indeed!
