Randy & Judy, Sorry I could not attend your Mom’s Wake, I was working in St. Louis all day. Please accept my condolences on the passing of your Mom. She was certainly a Pistol. She was always so pleasant whenever i ran into her. I know you are hurting at this moment, but be assured she’s in Heaven riding horses and making friends. Sincerely, Chuck
