Pammy we were best friends until we were 9 yrs. old and you moved away with your Mom and Dad. It broke my heart, and again my heart is broken. So many years cousin, but I will always remember you as my first best friend. My thoughts and prayers are with Jim, Lester, Aunt Donna, and Cousin Jackie. May the Lord comfort and bless you all.
