We started walking yesterday. It was a good day. The sun was shining and the weather was very good. A lot of people came. Some school children came to watch us leave. Many of my grandchildren are walking with me and I have good help. I know it will be hard though because Francis isn't here and I will think of him with every step and at every campsite. Please pray for me.
Thank you to all of you who wrote notes of support. I'm sorry I've been so busy that I haven't been able to write to you. I'll be in touch when I get back.
