    To Mike
    I am sorry for your loss. I did not know your parents had moved back to Clinton Co. We went to school together. I have good memories of you. Do you remember playing your trombone and me playing mellophone on the back of John R. McKinney’s bus? Seems like many, many years ago.
    I just wanted to say hello and sorry about your Mom.

    Nancy and Mike,
    I am sorry for your loss. I have lots of good memories of growing up with you and your parents. I can still picture that little ‘home’ your grandmother lived in and how much fun we had visiting with her…that’s a long, long time ago! I just wanted to let you know you were in my thoughts and prayers at this time.
