  1. Tammy, I was so surprised and shocked to see the obituary for Sonya in this morning’s paper. I am so sorry and I hope you are ok. You know your mom was one of my dearest friends for many years. She spoke of you girls so lovingly that I felt I knew you even better than I did.

    I am hoping to be at the service tomorrow but having lots of eye problems so if I am not there you will know the reason why.

    With much love,
    Hazel Keyton

  2. Tammy,
    So sorry to hear of Sonya’s passing. I don’t take the paper any more, but was promptly notified by our Sunday School class.
    Your Mother was a close friend for so many years, and we still miss her. Sonya was a sweet girl and I know she will be missed.
    Your Mother loved you girls so dearly.


  3. Tammy:

    Sincerest sympathy and God’s blessings to you and yours during this difficult time. Sonya was a great lady and we will miss her.

    I’m sure your Mother was waiting for her in Heaven with outstretched arms. Love to you. Chris and Craig
