Debbie, Scott, Lisa, Mandy, Adam,Brooke, Brandon — I have been reminiscing of all the fun times Carol & I had over the years. I will miss her “motherly” advice & her boisterous laugh. Although I cannot be with you today, I’m still out of town, I have been thinking of you all morning. I pray somehow you will be able to get thru another loss of your loved one’s. Much love to all of you Sheri & Clint

Learned of your loss on my return home yesterday. She was a beloved member of our Class of ’56 group. Even though she is no longer with you, there are so many precious memories to warm you hearts. They will last a lifetime.
