My Dear David, You may not remember me, but when we lived in Short Tract you lived across the road from us. I used to scoot you out of the road. I am so very, very sorry about your brother Rodney. I knew your Mom and Dad and all of your siblings. You have my deepest sympathy, David. God bless you and your family!!!
