    Debbie, Dean and Patty…I am so very sorry to hear of Grace’s death. She was a very nice lady and good coworker at TJ. And, I am truly sorry that I will be unable to attend her funeral, as I will be at the wedding of my oldest granddaughter. (Knowing Grace, I feel sure she will understand my absence.) Please know that each of you will be in my prayers and I hope to remain in contact with you all. I still laugh about the time she and I were sent to Nashville together to train on some new equipment…first getting lost and then ending up where we didn’t need to be at the time. Good memories to hold onto. May God give each of you comfort during this difficult time.

    All my love,
    Paulette & Tony
