Jimmie just wanted you to know that I am sorry for the the lost of your mother. She was s great person. I can remember the fun times that I had at your house and when your mom would let us play in the beauty shop and with make- up. She would take me bowling and other places with you. Your dad and mom where great people. God bless you and your family Linda Carringer
