I am sometimes accused of loving the Sutter family more than my own, which is an unfair statement, but to shed light on the falsehood, I want to honor my family in the same way I do the Sutters on their special days. I’m a day late due to busy season, but yesterday, March 13th was my sister’s birthday. She recently moved to Norfolk, Virginia with her company, Penske Truck Leasing, and she is relying on God to help her locate a home so she can move out of her hotel, and she is also relying on Him to find a tenant to rent her home here in South Carolina. So, as I do….let’s see what happened on “This Day in History.”

The notable people that she shares her birthday are….William Macy….he’s the only one I recognized.
Another interesting fact about Brandi???? She was the one who led me to the Lord back in ’93. Whether she remembers or not, she and I will always share that special moment in my life. I love you Brandi. I miss you dearly, but I know you’re where the Lord wants you. See you soon!!!
(She’s the one in the middle).
