Our sympathy to Schaeffer's family. My husband, Davey Riley, graduated with Schaeffer in 1957, Eufaula High School. So very sorry to hear this sad news.

Schaeffer was one of my very best friends from kindergarten through High School in Eufaula. Many, many happy memories.

Helen and family, We extend our deepest sympathy to your family. Loosing a caring, generous family member is always difficult. We will keep you all in our prayers.
