I’m so sorry for your loss! I’ll never forget when Kathy came up to me after an 8th grade band performance and asked if I knew Franklin was interested in Laura? I said really? And she said we could be in laws someday- we’ll sure enough we became a family! We both loved our grandchildren and had lots of celebrations together! I’m so sorry that my family has lost such a sweet lady. Jason an Aaron, I hope you know that I love you and you are my family, too! I love all of you!
