My Dearest Dr. Cavin, Cliff, Steve and JoJo, I am sorry to hear of Mrs. Cavin's passing. She represented everything that is considered southern grace and style. From being that loving second mother when I would spend the night to becoming that quiet, guiding adult mentor and friend with that all knowing smile. Even though we've drifted away, all of you are always in my heart and prayers.

With Love,
Patty Gray Boyd
