Dear Debbie, Becky, Jill, and Dean....my heart goes out to each of you in the passing of your precious mother. I have been thinking back and remembering all of the really special, fun times I had with your family......I actually felt like a part of your family. Your mom and dad were always so very kind and welcoming to me and it seems like I spent more Friday nights at y'all's house than I did at my own house.......going to football games, walking over to the K-N Rootbeer stand, going to baseball games in Uvalde and even in Hondo. Every memory I have is so precious to me and I am so thankful that I had each of you and your sweet parents as friends when I was growing up. I am so very sorry that I could not be there today for your mom's service....I only found out about it this morning, but my thoughts and love are with each of you. Your precious mom is now in a beautiful heaven with your sweet daddy, Mom Rhody, Dad Shorty, and Brian. Please know that I send each of you my love.
