Sorry for your loss, Jody. You were an excellent care provider. You will be getting at least 5 gold stars now in your crown and when you see Patsy next you will then receive rubies & diamonds in addition to the gold in your crown.

From your loving brother, Glynn & his wife, Martha (keeping you in our prayers).
