I'm so sorry about your mother Cathy. I had to have 2 surgeries this Spring and haven't even looked at my phone. I lost my Mama in 2017. I miss her greatly. They are our best friends aren't they? I think of you often. Not sure why we didn't keep in touch. I'd love to see you or talk to you. I hope your family is doing good. It was very nice of Wanda to let me know. Call me sometime 484-3001, I dont have your number, I do remember where you live though. I'm still up here on Maple st.(same place)

Prayers and love from the Cooper's! From day one of hanging out with Kermit, your entire family has been great to me. So many memories from High School of hanging out with all of you, and I am very sorry sorry for your loss. One day we will once again hang out with no pains and worries. Love all you guys!

My deepest condolences to the Gooch family. I had not seen Bobbie in a few years but she and her family and my family were close years ago when Bobbie's Mom and Dad and my Dad Raymond Galyon were still around. Bobbie's Mom, Mabel and my Dad , Raymond were sister and brother. Hope you are doing well.
