Sandy and Jack,

So sorry to hear about Chloe. She was one of the nicest, most giving people I have ever met. She influenced so many of us when we were young. She has numerous “kids” that she raised besides you. Her giving heart gave me an example to follow in my adult years and through her example, others benefitted. Thank you for sharing her with all of us. Heaven was her goal and she is there. God bless you and your family. You are in my prayers.

Love – Cathie

Sandy,

I’m very sorry to hear about the loss of your mother…She was a part of my growing up and going to Dr. Horgers office and made the visits alot easier when we were small.

Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers during this time.
