  1. Debbie, I’m really sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. You and I met when we were in the 3rd grade so I guess that would stand to reason I’ve known your mom since, well… quite a while. Even as she grew older, she was still stunning. Life is so short, please cherish the time we do have with family and friends.

  2. Nana, I know that you will not be able to read this or anything but I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday and let you know that you will always live in my heart!
