So many years have gone by since we shared laughter, love and the joyous fun of being young. Those memories never really go away, sadly they are brought forth with the passing of one of us....a classmate. Peace, love and Blessings to the family. I so look forward to meeting again in that glorious land of our Lord. Pax,Linda Clemmer Brackett
