Dear Gary: We're so sorry we missed you yesterday. We came to the viewing and there were no family members near the casket. We waited for a while, but still didn't see you. We asked the man at Leavitt's if he knew where you were, but couldn't find you. Please express our love and sympathy to Beverly and Randy, too. Please accept our heartfelt condolences in Kate's passing. The flowers on her casket were exquisite--so befitting the special lady she was. They were some of the most beautiful we've ever seen. The picture of her on the program was beautiful, ad we especially enjoyed the picture of her and Bry. We're grateful that we got to visit with her a couple months ago. What a neat lady! You undoubtedly have precious memories you will cherish over the coming years. May you have peace and comfort at this time. Tex and Lynnette
