    Pat and Jim,

    Even though it has been many years since I have seen all of you, I still remember you all fondly. I am so very sorry Pat, about losing your sister. I sure did enjoy her in high school.

    I was shocked and saddened to hear about Sue’s accident. I had not known her long or well but I consider Sue a friend. I am sorry for your loss.

    I was very saddened to hear about Susan. we spent so much time together when I was young that I felt like she was one of my sisters. I’m sorry I didn’t keep in touch.
