It was confirmed to Valerie a few weeks ago that the world is indeed small. After talking with her companion, Hermana Crowder, she found out that her mother is from Oxford, Massachusetts. That is super crazy because growing up we lived in Massachusetts and was part of the Worcester, MA Ward, which later split and was the Oxford, MA Ward! Valerie told us her mother's maiden name because it seemed so familiar to her. Guess what?! We knew them! Hermana Crowder's grandfather, Bishop Holbrook, married Valerie's parents on December 3, 1976! What a small world!
