Rae, I just learned of the death of your son--my sympathy to you. I could not find a current address for you, so decided to send condolences via this method. My brother was about 45 when he died & my parents say that it is one of the most difficult times, the loss of a child, no matter what their age. May you find joy as you recall shared memories with your son & may you find peace in the promises of our Savior. God''''s blessings to you. Carlene (a classmate from SHS!)
