Dear JoAnn and Bob,

Dear Joann: I just heard & was saddened about the loss of your son. Please accept my prayers & sympathies. I have not seen you in years, my maiden name was Pat Thompson, I use to live close to you. I married Ray Long 51 years ago. I know how special & hard it is to lose a child, I lost my child at age 14 l/2, & my only son was severly woounded in Iraq, He is able to get around now but with a handicap. I will keep DeeDee, Jessica you & Bob in my prayers.
