  1. Good afternoon Mrs. Kassenbrock,

    My name is Cami Shorter, Bailey’s mom from last year. I am still receiving your weekly emails…would you mind to please take me off your emailing list when you get a chance?

    Thank you and have a blessed day!

    • Sorry, I can’t do that. You need to go to the blog and on the side edit where it says “follow”. That will take your name off. Please tell Bailey “Hi” and I miss her!
