Bonnie and David,
Alltough we live just across the road from one another, we always can set our watches by Bonnies’ car leaving to work on the early mornings.
David we were not as close to your mother as many people, but your mother always liked to hear (Byron) play the organ.
Thank you for allowing us to “pass through” your mother’s life , and if there is anything we can do to ease some of your
discomfort, please let us know.
I played (Byron) for the Calvary Baptist Church’s Nursing Home Service and as soon as the Music started the room filled… I cannot say if she was there or not….
Remembering you in Prayers
Byron and Odessa
