I always talked to her when she came to our Sunday School Class

Crystal this is Linda Kathy's friend I called not to long ago I wanted to go talk to her and see her dog I hadn't seen yet but she wouldn't let me come for whatever was going on at the time I guess. Anyway I wanted to tell you how very sorry I am! If I could stop crying I might be able to write this! I'm also wanting to say I probably can't come because of the fact that you would have to stand and I can't do that. This here is why I wanted to keep in touch all that I could! I want to give you all my condolences!!
