am working on now. -- Ted Wright -- May 1, 2021
So, I will still have my copy of 18+ years of Collinsville happnings

earned one eventful night at the unbelievable age of 9 hours old.

hospitals until they could be identified and reunited. Once together,
his mother quickly and officially added Lucky to his birth name."
