Visiting Gary and  Earla Tate of Purcell were their grandchildren Patrick, Henry and EV of California.

Gary and Earla have been out to California to see them and their parents, Kris and Kinsie, several times, but hadn’t had them here since they moved and the pandemic hit.

They’ve all gotten so big since they moved!
