    Danny and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember what a good person she was as were you when you were our student here at Huntsville High School. I don’t remember if I ever told you that I grew up knowing your grandfather, Cartie Stapleton, who was a good friend of my father’s.

    Again, my sincerest condolences for you loss.
