13 "See y’all later! A Note to all our friends in Rockport-Fulton" by Kay Wise Denty

See y’all later! A Note to all our friends in Rockport-Fulton... It has been a wonderful 15 years here in Rockport-Fulton. Glynn and I came here for 3 years to finish his retirement and stayed for 15. A wonderful 15 years. This community has been good to us. And we want to say Thank You. It was wonderful for Glynn to finish his 34 years of teaching Band at the Rockport-Fulton Middle School. Health-Wise Massage Therapy thrived. And we bought a house on the water. How could we leave?

We have met some of the friendliest people in some of the most fabulous organizations in this small coastal town. The Fulton Mansion is dear to my heart and the Texas Maritime Museum is most dear to Glynn’s heart. The Center for the Arts holds a special place for both of us, not to mention all of our fabulous artist friends! My passion for the theater has grown beyond addiction at the Rialto Theater and the Rockport Little Theatre. We have one of the best Chambers of Commerce in the country. I truly love my church family at Sacred Heart and feel at home in any of our churches in town. And our fabulous festivals, beaches and glorious sunrise and sunsets. Not to mention the most fabulous little health food store you could ever ask for!

But the time has come for us to be closer to family. One day’s drive, instead of three. I have had a desire to live in the mountains for more than 20 years. Asheville, North Carolina is exactly half way between all of our families and 4 hrs to the nearest relative. So we are headed to the mountains to “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.” (Thoreau) Being a true Southerner, Glynn has never lived in cold winters before, so we hope to become Winter Texans. We will not be saying “Good-Bye” but “See you later”. Hasta luego. A plus tard. Bis spater. Arrivederci. And, Thanks for the memories.

Much Love, Glynn and Kay Wise Denty

We'll miss you, neighbor! Happy travels and no one can blame you for moving to the mountains!

Kay, you will be missed so much in the community. I do hope you come back for winters though as we will never be the same without your big heart! I still have the pelican that your husband made which will be my reminder of the two of you! God luck in the mountains and good traveling!

Having done the same thing as you are - I can say it's worth it. Good luck. It was a pleasure knowing you when I lived in Rockport too. Glenda Trembly

We will miss y'all! All the best and bon voyage! xx

Good luck on your next chapter of life Kay and Glynn!

Since Asheville is another of my favorite places in the world, I can certainly understand the draw to move there, and happy to know we will only miss you part of the year! Thank you both for all the wonderful things you've given this community and for your friendship.
