I am so sorry for your loss. I have been thinking about Jeannie and your family this week. While searching for a current contact to get back in touch, I found this obituary. It is tough to lose a parent (and husband) at any time, but I can't believe you have to go through this while our country is in such turmoil. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Love to you all, Connie Angell Campbell. Jeannie if you want to catch up, my email is [email protected]
