Dear Jim,
I have so many wonderful memories of your whole family!! Your mom was a fantastic person, as was your dad!! I remember when your mom gave a couples wedding shower for Steve and me back in 1973. I still have the bluebird of happiness she gave me, and I cherish it because it reminds me of her! I am so glad she is with Jesus and your dad along with Steve and my dad!! What great rejoicing is in heaven!!
I love you my brother!!!
Love,
Sandy

It was more than 50 years ago that we met Mary and Jess Barclay. Little could we know at that time how deep our friendship would become! Stored in our memory are so many wonderful times spent with them and we cherish those memories as priceless treasures. Knowing that they are both with our Lord brings such comfort at this time!
