Samantha's MS Walk
In New Orleans
Dear friends and family,

This Valentine's Day marks the second anniversary of my diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. Thankfully, mercifully, it didn't take long to regain full use of my hands and feet after that first attack. Scott and I proceeded to suffer, persevere and grow in our marriage and our compassion. I absolutely would not be as healthy and happy as I am today without his unwavering fortitude and constant support.

To celebrate two years free of relapse, we invite each of you (yes, if you are reading this, you are invited) to join us on Saturday March 21, 2015 for Walk MS New Orleans at Audubon Park. Please join our team: The Oyster Poboys. We'll do the walk and then drive over to Parkway Bakery and Tavern for dem poboys.

If you come from out of town, Scott's profession makes him uniquely qualified to recommend the best hotels for any taste or budget. A few of you could even grab a spot on our air mattress or comfy mega couch. Have a little NOLA vacation.

If you can't come but would like to help, you can also donate to help us reach our fundraising goal of $500.

Thank you forever and always for your prayers and support,

-- Sam Horne (2/15/2015)

Samantha and her husband Scott have moved to New Orleans in this past year (from Seattle ... after Austin)

Sad Pet News
I am now pet-less (& plan to stay that way) after the October 2014 passing of the family dog Georgia and the 2015 passing of Chi-Chi the cat. They are missed, but lived long productive pet lives. -- Ted
