Deborah,
Hearing about your loss has deeply saddened me, but I know that this is far from what you are going through right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and your family.

My heartfelt sympathy to Ronnie and the girls. I am so happy I drove down from Dallas for our DHS class Christmas dinner and got to visit with Maria. I met her in 1951 when we started at St. Leo. Our moms were our Girl Scout leaders. So many memories of my sweet friend. What a beautiful soul. I know she is in heaven with our Lord.
