    I am so very sorry to hear about Uncle Fred. Words can’t begin to express how I feel for all you kids. I thought I had it rough with one and a half years between. I am so very sorry, I can’t make it up this time. My heart goes out to all of you and I will keep you I’m my prayers. Glad him and Aunt Jill are together again and just maybe playing cards with my mom and dad. I love y’all.
