Hi Anne--I am from Texarkana. I contacted you after I found out I had Celiac a couple of months ago. Just ran across your page. Thanks for the help that offered getting started on the gluten free diet. I am feeling much better. It has been a slow process. I am very very sensative. Visited the Whole Foods Market sat in Little Rock. Found lots of new things to try that are not available in Texarkana.
