Christa sent a pdf copy of seven pages of the book Sylvester Lewans wrote for his grandparents' 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration. I think you'll want to read it, so I've separated the pages to see if I can enlarge em enough right here. I can't attach the pdf.
Ok, reading fuzzy type is good for your character, trust me.
(Yes, I know you already have more than enough character, but try, ok?)
See, there's not much you can do with Hesch.
