  7. Kathy and Lou Ann. I have such fond memories of your mother (and father). My parents both died 3 years ago within 6 months of each other so I know what a difficult time this is for you both. I think about you often , Kathy, and we all wondered where you are at the class reunion in August. Would love to get in touch. I live in Shelby, NC. I hope all your good memories help ease this difficult time. Take Care!
