We send prayers and blessings to you, John and your family. I am remembering how we seven girls played together as first cousins. I am sending my sympathy to all of you. Ann and Tom's family, Nancy's family, Judy and her sons. We are slowly moving to the next dimension and there will find Light, Hope and Love eternally.
