Hi Cynthia, I’m so sorry to hear about your Mother. She was such a sweet person. I hadn’t seen your parents since they left Payne and that is a long time ago. I haven’t seen you since 1968. I hope life has been good to you. We’ve both lost our parents, but time goes on. May God be with you and Danny and your families.
I was sorry to read about Gracie’s passing in our local newspaper. I remember going to church with her at McGill United Btrethren, just down the road from where we both lived. She was a very special lady,a good friend. I will miss her.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this hard time.
We’re so sorry for your loss.
