Natural Causes and Other Stories
by Gary McLouth

Natural Causes

McLouth’s characters in Natural Causes turn vulnerable moments into acts of insight, love and the kind of heroism that passes for simple good work in a small town. These stories are linked by the intents and intuitions of people determined to do the right thing even as they are destined to endure the realities of circumstance. You could say they act out of strong faith in God and from deep commitments to family, community, and freedom, but don’t ask them to talk about it much.

2017/9 — Don Cappelli

Dear members,
I hope all of you survived Hurricane Irma with little or no damage and life is getting back to normal.

I’m working with a group of volunteers from all over the country who have come to help clean up and repair homes. It’s inspiring to see all these people working together. If any of you need help recovering from the storm, please call me.

I missed seeing everyone at the meeting this month; hope to catch up with you and hear your stories in October.
