Richard Lee, Bobby, Roy and family. My father John "Jack" Callaway & I talk about your family all the time. I can see your Dad at my Dad's in all his colorfully glory talking about Dupont. Leaving us in stitches. Your Mom one of the sweetest people I have ever known. I can hear her laugh now. The trips to DC etc... The party for Richard Lee when he came home from California. Baby shower for Bobby's son etc... Dad and I were just talking about your Mom just a few weeks ago not knowing of her situation. I told Dad that I would try to find out how she was doing, then I read this today. How sad we are. Sending you hugs and prayers. Dad is 89 and doing well. If you get a chance stop by and say hello. Dad is at 1218 Emerson Ave in Salisbury. I am still here too. Give me a call and say hello. Hugs and prayers Jacalyn "Jacki" Callaway Ford. 410-548-4712
