Linda, it's been a long time since we've talked. I just heard about your Mom, and I didn't know you lost your Dad in Dec until today. I know this is a very sad time for you and your family, and I am so sorry. I'm sending you a big hug. We had some really good times as kids, I miss those days.

Love,
Jan (Quesenberry) Stanford
