MEGAN STAAB Rash writes, “Jeff and I are enjoying Midland and experiencing the ways of farming. With three boys in tow we are never short of any help. Ian started first grade this year at St. Johns in Warrenton, Aidan began pre-K, and little Owen turned the big 2. We were blessed to have met an angel this year, Eloise Kathleen, who came in the best package weighing 5 lbs 3 oz. She brought us much joy and is loved dearly by her entire family. Though she had to leave, we know that she is forever guiding all of us to a path of truth and righteousness. We wanted to extend our greatest thanks to my MBC sisters who have been so supportive through this whole ordeal. You all brighten my day when I need it the most, and are there to catch me when I begin to stumble. It is nice to know that no matter the distance we are forever sisters. Eloise appreciates that you all are looking out for her mommy!” TANATHA PURSLEY Amos writes, “Jeremy and I recently celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. We have two handsome, very energetic boys; Branson (9) and Lincoln (4). I am in my ninth year as a Nursing Home Administrator currently running a facility in Ravenswood WV. Besides our regular full time jobs, Jeremy, the boys and I also have a large beef cattle farm. The boys are very involved and enjoy “life on the farm”.” Patrick Joseph Klaus Pega was born March 27, 2012 to BECKY WORRELL Pega and Christopher.
