Dear Andy and Randy,
So sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. We were good friends all those years ago in school and shared in the joy when you two were little. I'm sorry I didn't know she was ill and that she lived so close; I could have visited her. You will be in my prayers.

What wild and crazy times I remember with your Mom at Stevensville High School. We sat along side one another in 8th grade history class, and, if it were not for your Mom I would have never passed history. Mr, Sparks would call on us because we dearly liked to talk. She was so pretty and I wished I could have worn a "pencil" skirt like she could. Always looked so put together. Of course, after graduation we lost contact. But, I did see Miss Sue, shopping in Easton and we did talk when the Class of 1965 held its 50th reunion. When we talked she looked forward to the cousin lunches. Sue was a wonderful person so kind to me as my childhood was not the greatest at times and she knew my bad days and always made them bright days. My thoughts and prayers are with you doing this sad time. Nancy LEWIS Hall
