  • Dear Valerie, I know how stressful and painful these past few months have been for you as you watched and cared for your Dad and had to face the sad reality that his time on this Earth was coming to an end. You did so with love and compassion and honor and respect. After your Uncle Carson passed, your Dad kept in contact with me to see how I was doing, and often talked about you. He told me numerous times as we talked and he would tell me about his health issues that he was so proud of you and loved you so much. Please know that even though I can’t physically be there, I will be with you and Clem in spirit. My thoughts and prayers and love are with you.

    Dear Jo Ann and Jamie, Your loss is great and I know the pain of that loss. I am so going to miss his phone calls and hearing yet another one of his silly jokes, or listening to stories about him and Carson. I had no idea that when you all were here for Carson’s Memorial Service 17 months ago that that would be the last time I saw him. I’m so sorry for your loss. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs and love to you.

    Dear Valarie, Aunt Annie is so sorry for your loss and she and I will be praying for you and your family. James was moms favorite nephew and they were very close. I used to visit every summer Emery and Lee with Grandma when she was still with us and saw Jamie and Carson when they were still teens. It has been a long history with our families and James will be greatly missed. Cousin Barbara (Annnie’s daughter)
