    Callie and Stephen, My heart aches for you as I read Victor’s obituary. We were good friends during high school and that friendship continued as we gathered as the Class of 64 throughout the years. I remember my last visit with you was seeing you in Walmart in Wilmington as I was in NC visiting family. I hope all of you listened to my message when Victor was moved to Hospice. I have been thinking of you and pray God will help you deal with this sad time. Love and Hugs, Carolyn
