    Granny says “Sheila has a farm growing there, and she hope they are eating the broccoli leaves. IT is so big and good to eat”

    Nice pictures and Granny says she wish she was there with you, she said she will be there this summer, if God’s willing. Garland is getting married July 20 the week before the family reunion. Be sure to give the Trinidad, family the reunion information.We are looking for a venue between Gainesville, Ocala or Orlando.
