Diane, Mary Jo and family,

I had so many good times at your house. Your mom and dad were so cool. I remember when they bought the Barracuda for Mary Jo before she was 16. Urtie Raye and Marvin called to talk to my mom about letting me drive Mary Jo around in it a couple of times before she got her license. I also remember coming over on Friday evenings – steak night…and hanging out in the bedroom with your mom. I loved to stay in there and talk with her. All of you are in our thoughts…sending you peace, love and hugs.

I am so sorry for your loss–you are in my thoughts and prayers. Urtie Raye was such a pleasant person, and my mom thought the world of her. I always enjoyed the times I was able to accompany my mom when she visited with her.
