You are such a great friend. I am sorry we lost touch these last few years with all the job changes and such. I just heard the news and I am deeply saddened. You helped me out in a time in my life when few others would and never expected anything in return. I will never forget you my brother.

My condolences to the entire McClinton family. Margaret is a dear friend and neighbor. I have heard her talk so often about her children---always with pride and love. Another link will be gone from the family chain, but Faith will keep it all together. God Bless you, everyone. Geri Grimes Coats, Nacogdoches, TX.
