My father was a Shriner All of my life, I never go to visit one of there
Hospitals But My mother did one time and told me about how amazed she was 
their was doctor doing nothing but making ears ,noses, etc. Most people just 
the funny cars and costumes they wear, But don't know the whole story about 
they do. If you know of a crippled child or a child that has been burned 
look up your local Shriner's group and get the info to them and they will 
it from there.

I know that since it rarely comes around we could all use a little good news 

and again just to remind us to keep hoping and dreaming because sometimes 
things do happen and when they do they sort of make the rest of it all worth
while...or at least not seem so bad.

So my good news is not really mine, it belongs to my brother Tim. Tim for 
any of

you who might have ever met him is a real character. A big ol'country boy 
who is

truly a real American red neck, farm worker, and truck driver. Tim lives in 
single wide trailer on a dirt road with his wife and three of his 5 kinds. 

old Dodge truck can be heard for miles before you ever see the cloud of dust 
kicks up as he speeds his way Dukes of Hazzard style down the dirt roads 
he lives. Tim is a good guy but from time to time his antics have put him in
contact with the local law, this is in a way one of those times. The Linn 

Missouri Sheriff made a call on my parents trying to find where Tim lived 
then came out to speak to him...this visit was not as a law enforcement 
but as the husband of an elementary teacher where my brothers sons attend
school. According to what I was told the Sheriff's wife had mentioned 
who is my brothers oldest son. The Sheriff remembered Austin from the time 
had to make a call out to my parents house. It had been a few years ago when 

family dog attacked Austin. The attack resulted in the loss of one of 
ears. The Sheriff remembered how surprisingly gentle, sweet, and 
good that dog actually was. The Sheriff also rememberd how sad the boys were
that it had to be put down, but this is not about a dog. This is about 
Tom Parks and his conversation with my brother. Sheriff Parks is a long 

member of a fraternal organization known for their amazing acts of charity
especially towards children. Sheriff Parks it seems had been calling fellow
members of his order all over the State of Missouri after his talk with his
wife...in Saint Louis he had gotten the answer he was after. The Masonic
Shriners of Missouri it seems have found the funds and a way for little 
to get his ear back. They will be taking care of it all, something that my
brother and his family would never be able to do on their own. A young boy 
is really just a great every day average kid will now be able to grow up 
out having to face the cruelty of dealing with looking different from the 
kids. He will be able to play baseball and go to school and do all the 
little boys do and will no longer get picked on because he looks different
because he only has one ear...This is the good news I received and wanted to
share with you.

Thank you.
