    Dear Christeen and Gladys, so sorry to hear about Grover passing, brings back a lot of memories. I remember when Carla was born and every one was so excited. The years have put a lot of miles between us, but I still remember the good days of seeing your family members. May God comfort you two and your family members at this time. Hope I see you again in Frankfort when I visit. Christeen, I enjoyed our visit when we were shopping in the same store, a year ago.
