Bessie Ann, I am so sorry to hear about Greg. It has been a long time since I have seen you but I remember the good times as a child when many Saturday mornings meant being at your house sitting on the floor watching westerns and cartoons. Please know that I am thinking of you and that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
