I send to you and the rest of your family my sympathy and am very sorry to have missed your mom’s service. We are in Houston, Texas meeting our third granddaughter.
It has been so many years since I’ve seen you. I have fond memories of our moms traveling together to all of your away basketball games. Your mom was a very loving person.
