  • Dear Sandy and family. I was so shocked when I saw today’s TCH. My condolences to you and your family. I know you both are so family oriented. I had been thinking of you and Dode soooo strongly lately and thought how I have not made it over to visit you both since you’ve lived here. I was even going to call Diane this past weekend to get an update on you both before I called you. I am sorry I won’t be able to make the memorial service as I am heading to Columbia, SC on the 21st to visit my sis, Margie’s family and her husband Bill. I will try to come visit you when I return from my travels.
