    David and Valarie, i dont know if you remember me or not, but Mary and i were very good friends while i lived in Abilene and attending ACU.

    I am so sorry to hear about Mary- had she been ill? Valarie you must be all grown up by now. Did Mary still have all her dolls? David, every time we eat asparagus, i think of you taking Mary to meet your parents and helped herself to too many stalks.

    If younsee this, i would love to hear back from you. Mt email is Thinking of you during this time.

    I give my deepest sympathies and prayers to you, David. I couldn't have been happier when you told me you found Mary. She was such a kind, good hearted woman that made may day when I knew she was coming into the office to see me. I will miss her loving smile.
