    Dear Paul, Anthony and family: I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet grandmother. She sounds amazing and I know she was loved! My prayers and condolences go out to each of you. I hate that I couldn’t attend the services. I had a class scheduled to teach. You were all in my thoughts and prayers. With deepest sympathies, Sheila Youngblood
