Gloria, You,Lee & family and Joel and family have been in our thoughts and prayers since you called on Saturday with the sad news! It is difficult to be so far away and not be able to be with the family during this sad time. However, Ron and I talked about our good times together years ago when we were in GA. I am so happy that we got to see 'J' last June and he was able to have a good visit with us. Please know we will be thinking of you tomorrow and all the weeks ahead. Love, Dawn & Ron
