Thanksgiving day – Hank went with us, (and Peggy and Tommy) to the church service, which was at 10:00. Fred Lindemann preached - an excellent sermon. We were alone there after. We had dreaded the loneliness, but thinking about it beforehand seemed to take the “edge” off of it – and the day passed like our usual Sunday.
We tried to get Mart and Hank around supper time but getting no answer, we went to the movies.
