To Clint, Christine, Gabriel, Nathan and to all Sandra Lou Vadney's family members and all her friends: I am very sorry for your loss. Being busy with other matters I did not even read yesterday's Daily Star until this morning. I would have been there at the Laurens Fire Station to offer support had I known of your loss. Through the pain try to remember all the good times. Your neighbor, Charlie.
