It has been a long time, but I want you to know of the fond memories I have of our Bryant Jr. and East High days. I always felt welcome in your home, a place I considered to be a palace, and your family was always so gracious to me. That is one of the words that I would use to describe you and your family. The others I would choose are dedicated, loyal, honest, hard-working, and sincere. What a great man...thanks to you and your family for sharing him with all of us, and for continuing his legacy. I pray you all feel peace and strength at this difficult time. Love you.
PS I don't think there has ever been a Jr. High graduation party better than the one your mom and dad hosted for us back in 19XX. Great memory.
