Dear Carolyn, Linda and family,

My thoughts and prayers go out to you. Benny brings back warm memories when I was little and he was out here in service. I liked the good old days when we all saw each other more. I guess the last time was when Mother and I came back for the scool reunion 10 years ago. We are talking about coming for the one this summer. If so, we will see you then. Take care, ~Sherri Beth~
