Dear Marianne: Even though I haven’t seen Junie recently, I shall miss him. I always enjoyed visiting you all at your home and he was always welcomed me. It was fun looking at all of your souvenirs and treasures from your trips. Also enjoyed the tea, coffee, sandwiches, and “fatty goodies”. Love and prayers, Shirley

Mrs. Frazier,

I admire your wit and your humor. You are a very special lady and I know that your husband was blessed. The bible says that he that has found a wife, has found a great thing. The time that you and H.S. have shared I know will be treasured forever. Thank you for allowing me the time and opportunity to serve you. May God Bless You.

Sincerely, Tracy Bradshaw
