Wesley and Family,
How much I treasure all my wonderful memories with our dear Melody! Over all these many years, we have made some great ones. Melody was such a blessing to me. I smile when I think about the time when she & I just took off to FL to see our friend Ann Guymon! That was so much fun!! I will miss her so much. My thoughts & prayers are with you all. I know it is not going to be easy. May God grant you peace in the days ahead. ❤️❤️❤️ Judy Craig
