    I’m so sorry I am unable to attend. I have long standing Dr’s appts for both my grand daughter and my husband which directly conflict with both times. I love you all dearly and my heart and prayers are with you all. Aunt Bonnie is where she wanted to be-with Uncle Francis. Never saw 2 people who were so in love with each other and never expect to see that again. It just doesn’t really happen anymore. Although I can’t be there in person, please know that I am there in spirit. Love you all. Debbie
