Aggie and I were little together and we were at high school together

and the last time I saw her at our class reunion, I was concerned for her. She and Bull had many good times with us. We had known them

going back at least 70 years. May God Bless her remaining family. Jim and I send our love to them and know that this earth life is a second estate in the middle of our 1st and our 3rd like a 3 -act play.
