    Barbara and Gayle, when I heard of your mother’s passing I was deeply saddened, and then I felt relief for you – as you two are wonderful daughters who have been through a lot emotionally with your mom. What a wonderful obituary you had in today’s paper, I especially loved the picture of Vivian. I will MISS HER even though she and I did not really have a conversation, I could tell what kind of person she was just by the things she said. Her suffering is over and the Good Lord is taking care of her now. I feel a kinship with you both and want you to know that I would ALWAYS be there for you if you ever needed me. My phone number is 1479-871-2832 and my address is 4101 Chapman, Springdale, 72762. My heart is with you and your families during this time.
    Love you,
