More E. Fay Jones

We motored on into Ft. Worth on Friday afternoon, with our main goal being to reach the Lena Pope Memorial Chapel before it was scheduled to close at 4:00 PM. The traffic was heavy and we were getting nervous, but we arrived at just about 3:30:

Isn't she lovely! We could see her as we approached on the freeway....a far different setting from the three Fay Jones Chapels we had seen prior to this. What was he thinking? We soon found out!

Here's the lovely front door:

Thanks for introducing me to these beautiful chapels. I think it is spiritual just walking in the woods, but these structures bring the woods and sky inside.

Be sure to take some long walks to recover from all that barbeque cholesterol, LOL! We love it, too.
