    Carolyn, It has been a long time since I have seen you. Since high school actually, but wanted to send a note to you to tell you how sorry I am that you lost your Mother. I am sure it will be a great loss.
    I lost my Dad in 2000 so I know there is always a small hole where they have been held so long. They have been there for you every step on your life.
    Will be praying for your family Judy Perry DuVall
