Kelly, Forrest and Leif:

I was so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I just found out 12/15/03and I am so sad that I didn’t get to come down and say “goodbye”. Jody was always a good friend to me ever since we worked together at the Wheeling Clinic. I will certainly miss hearing from her and getting those “postcards” from her travels! You had an “extraordinary” mother and I am glad to say that she had a place in my heart. God Bless all of you.

Love, Sandy
