    My deepest sympathy to the entire family as you go through these tough times in life. I was one of Mrs. Colvins student 25 years ago. She made a big differance in my high school years. I made it a point to stop by to visit her every year while on vacation in Sabinal. I love her stories about Charlie and looked forward to her new stories about her river boat trips.
    I will still make it a point to drive by her house while I visit my home town of Sabinal. I will miss her dearly.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

    Daniel and I send our deepest sympathy to all of you during this difficult time. May you be blessed knowing she is now being held in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father.

    I always loved hearing your stories about what Tay Tay was up too. She sounded so vibrant and joyous all the time. Her picture is beautiful. I can just see her driving into SA to get her hair done in the middle of the hurricane and hanging up on you. Thank goodness you will have all the special memories of her.

    Much love Cathy Daniel Rea
