    Purvis, Ronnie and I are so sorry to hear of your loss. I am sorry that we never got to really know her. With her illness, I only got to speak to her twice. Ronnie wanted to go to the memorial , but I am his driver and I am in New Braunfels with my brother. The doctor had to redo his shoulder replacement. Ronnie and I send our prayers to you and your family.
