Linda and family....

We were so sorry to hear about Andy... or as Craig called him... Andy McDuff.
We have not heard anything about your family in years and were not aware of Andy having cancer. Our memories of him are from many years ago and we will miss his fun-loving spirit. May God bless you and your family as you have suffered so many losses since we left Seminole. I have always admired your strength praying for peace and healing over your family!
