Although I haven't seen you and Sandra in many years you have my deepest sympathy.

We had many good times together in high school. I think what I remember most about Sandra was her bubbly personality and smile. Some how you and I lost track of each other, but I think of you often. Again so sorry for your loss.

         I am just crushed about your mother!!! I had no idea she was ill. I would have been at the service had I known about her passing. We had so much fun in our high school days camping and hanging out. She always treated me as one of her own she will live in my heart forever. I still have the quilt she made Jimmy over 22 years ago. I feel so horrible for you I know how much you loved her. You and your brothers have my deepest sympathies and I will be including your family in my prayers to help you get through this difficult time. Please get in contact with me if you need anything and to update phone and address. Love you girlfriend!!!
