So nice of you to give us these, Carol! Thank you!! I have the second book by John Merz and in fact, that's where I got most of my info. John and I corresponded for a few years before he passed away and he was convinced that my J.C. came back to Maryland. I have never heard of the first book, though, by Patricia Martin, and it could be very helpful. Unfortunately, I live in NC and am not able anytime soon to get to N.S. Any ideas if I could buy a copy somewhere?
