    Hi Elizabeth and Brent:

    I was given your name by an old friend who suggested that I contact you regarding lodging during the 2014 Pageant. Planning a reunion of sorts to Palmyra after serving a mission 40 years ago in the land of Cumorah. We are planning to attend the Pageant on either July 15th or 16th and could book your loverly home with all our family members.

    Do you have any rooms available for those days? Thanks for your help.
