Christine Hatfield Did you get my email?

Christine Hatfield Alright that sounds good

message 11: by Lurlene

Lurlene McDaniel Send me your mailing inf and label quanity. And thanks for bracelet offer. When I'll send you my address with your labels.

Christine Hatfield That sounds great and I have most of your books but I'm going to ask more of your books for Christmas and I get it because I mail all of my bracelets to everyone and it does cost a lot of money and I'm going to send you a bracelet in the mail

Lurlene McDaniel Here's what I do for signed book requests: I autograph large labels and mail them to the reader b/c Mailing books back and forth is a hassle and expensive. So you'll have to send me:

1. Your full name and address---send it to me via my commercial mailbox
2. The number of labels you want (limit 7)

Christine Hatfield Lurlene I was wondering if you can autograph your books called the year of luminous love and keep me in your heart and a horse for Mandy and when dreams shatter and a gift of love and the year of chasing dreams and wishes and dreams and more than just a smart girl and send them all in the mail for me please

Lurlene McDaniel Thank you for sharing. I know your life isn't easy, but I'm peased to learn about you making bracelets. One thing I know about life--nothing is as rewarding as helping others especially when you are hurting. I don't know why it's true, but it is. Keep up your good work and so glad your wish t Disney came true.

Christine Hatfield Your welcome and I love reading your books and the reason I decided to read your books is because I have a medical problem and it's called broncho pulmonary dysplasia and it's in both of my lungs and I was in the hospital until I was 14 months old and I was a premature baby so I have an oxygen in my nose and a g-tube in my stomach and I'm making bracelets for the make a wish foundation of New Jersey and the reason I'm doing that because I got a wish to go to Disney world with my family and my nurse

Lurlene McDaniel Thanks for reading and buying my books!

Christine Hatfield Thanks for being my friend
