I don''t know if you remember me or not, but I went to school with you in Woodburn.  Shirley, we were in the same grade.  Just wanted you girls to know I''m thinking of you at this time.  It''s hard to lose loved ones anytime, but at Holidays its worse.

To Elaine & family,
So saddened to hear of Junior''s passing. I have known him for many years, and worked with him at WDD.  He always was so friendly, the first one to work, and the first one to leave. Ha!  We had a lot of good times at the company Christmas parties. He left so many good memories to cherish. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.
