  1. So sorry to hear about your mom. We always had fun at the football games and playing cards with her and your dad. Haven't talked to her in years, but I remember the fun we had when we got together.

  2. Jeannine and I go back a long way! She was a really good friend of mine but we moved to Florida and haven't seen her for a few years. Remember her dad, mom and brother. She was a fun friend. So sorry! I'll be her age in October.

  3. So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I remember all the mornings I was at your house before school. 🙂 thinking of your family at this difficult time.
