I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends show up and support me last Friday during our book launch for Strokes of Compassion. Still surprised with how quickly the luncheon filled up with almost 300 people showing up!Longtime friends, sisters Anne McPhail and Tricia Parish with my very special friend Kathie Lee Gifford who wrote the forward to Strokes of Compassion. Kathie Lee came in town for a quick little visit as well as a wine signing right after our luncheon at Costco, if you haven’t tried her wine yet it’s pretty delicious! Can't thank my precious friend Anne Farrell Tata who wrote a chapter in my book for all her support. As well as Manny Ohonme who started Samaritan's Feet which a certain percentage of sales from Strokes of Compassion will go towards his non-profit. Thank you volunteers!!! And of course the day wouldn't be complete without music by country singer Jimmy Wayne.
