    Gail, Alan, and family – I am so sorry that you have lost your mother. She was a dear, sweet person and she loved you all very much! I will always remember the endearing way she would say goodbye to you when she was talking to you on the phone which says it all, “Love you, love you!” Thoughts and prayers to you all!

    To The Family of Antonia Garrett:
    I am so sorry to hear of Antonia’s passing. We became good friends and had many good times together. It was a sad time when we both lost our spouses about 18 days apart.
    I will be going to Freeman Hospital in Joplin on April 27 for carotid artery surgery.
    I hope all your family is doing well.
    God Bless Antonia and all of you.
