SUTTON-JOHNSON ~ “Louise would like to let you know that her work here is done. She received a call, sort of an offer you can’t refuse, for an appointment from which she will not be returning. This assignment comes with a huge sign on bonus, a reunion with family and friends she has not seen in a long time. Job security is exactly 110 percent. Her new mission takes her to a wonderful place where she will be praying, socializing, fishing, playing dominoes, crossword puzzles, bid whiz and growing her plants until her heart’s content. Laughter and love are guaranteed. Food is delicious and you never gain an ounce. She left detailed instructions for her family to celebrate her mission here which has now been complete. Low adherence to this instruction will not be tolerated! ! !
