I will never hear church bells ringing again
without smiling... Upon hearing that her elderly grandfather
had just passed away, Katie went straight to her grandparent's
house to visit her 95-year-old grandmother and comfort her.

"Many years ago , realizing our advanced age, we figured out

and continued, "He'd still be alive if the ice cream truck
hadn't come along.
