Rich and Linda DuBose

Rich and Linda DuBose recently enjoyed reconnecting with their daughter, Erika, and grandkids (Carter and Ella) in Bend, Oregon. The circle is a perfect symbol of the importance of inclusion—of making the most of relationships and taking the time to connects the dots. The old country bluegrass song, "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," harkens to a better day when "goodbyes" will be a thing of the past and we'll spend forever with those we love.

Carter is a sophomore at Bend High and Ella is in 5th grade. This was the first time we were able to be with them since last summer.  The pandemic has taken its toll on our face time visits, but we are glad the future is looking brighter.

In a larger way, our Carmichael family becomes the circle of love where Jesus dwells and we are able to celebrate His goodness.
