    Lynn, I really liked James and was so happy for you two finding one another and being married for life.

    Lynn, what do you need at this time of loss? I would prefer to send something needed/wanted beyond flowers.

    Cordell wishes you well and he remembered James (not his name). He asked if James was a preacher, something I did not know.
    Cordell is having heart attacks and pacemaker trouble. Last week his pacemaker did not kick in properly and he woke up on the floor. The hospital sent him home.

    Best wishes to you and your children and grandchildren.
