Remembering the good times we had back through the years,
as we’ve grown older and our families have increased, we’ve not been
as close, but we always knew that lasting friendship was only a call away.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, Mary Lou, and your family. Now he’s
at peace, and life does go on with many good memories. God Bless
Love Barbaralee
