Sandy, we are thinking of you constantly and hold you, Debra, and your family in our prayers. What a beautiful lady you mother was. We really enjoyed visiting with her when she visited LA., especially since we could all talk Texas. She was so very kind. I know she will be greatly missed.
All our love,
Todd & Jerry
My sincere sympathy to Jean’s family. She was very uplifting person in High School and was really important to the AHS Class of 1961. Our prayers go out to the family.
Jean was a beautiful woman who always appeared confident, secure, positive, and caring. May the people she meets on this next journey appreciate her qualities.
