The Lighthouse — Hannah Jane Nancarrow

When I was in fourth grade my class spent a month learning about lighthouses. I became totally fascinated by lighthouses — enthralled by their role as beacons, warning of treacherous waters, and as coastal chaperones, guiding sailors into safe harbors.

    You are so speccial!! Your father used to pick Britta up from her sleep overs on Saturday or Sunday mornings and I cherished our talks, I alway made the girls the “authenic” cocoa and he was amazed. He was so humble, making cocoa was NOTHING compared to all the wonder he created with the earth and his gift from God!!

    Wonder why your father gave Britta horses?? LOL

    One time we were at at horse show in Del Mar, Britta and Paris were two of the last kids there, they were waiting to be picked up. I had to go back for something, and I turned the corner, and Britta was galloping up and down the rows of stalls on a BROOM as her horse.

    I lost it, she was probably about 13 or so. I rode stick horses as a kid-we always played Bonanza but I can’t remember riding a broom!!! I plan to tell this story @ her wedding so make sure I am invited!!

    Love you and yours,

    Carol Duncan
