    I was so sorry to read the e-mail from Phyllis letting us know about Dallas. I was so in hopes that we could all get together in the near future but it was not meant to be. Time goes by very quickly and we don't do what we would like to do. Just know that my love and my sympathy go out to you and your family. I pray that God will give you the strength to face the coming days and I know that He will. With Love, Jack and Dianne
