    Dear Deanna and Family, So sorry to hear of the loss of your loving husband and Father. I'll always remember what great friends and neighbors you were, and who could forget Bo. I can't be there in person but I'm there in spirit and prayers. Please tell your kids I said hello and a hello to Harriett and Claudette if they are there. Great memories of years past with our kids. Remember the snake escapade? I know what your going through now and what a sad time it is but sometimes a little levity helps. Love and prayers. Donna Lou
