Dear Bobbie Lee and family,
We send you our love. Page will truly remain in our hearts --remember our Tobacco Festival and Gentry days-- and we won't ever forget his wonderful smile. We are not able to make the services because I had wrist surgery Friday after a tennis court fall and Coleman doesn't drive very much with PD. We are with you, however, and truly care. Our sincere sympathy, Dottie & Coleman Figg
