It's been a long time since those days back in Westview! We all had a lot of fun, didn't we?
I never thought we would lose you, you were one of the sweetest people around.
My brother, Dewey, went to Vietnam also, but we were lucky enough to get him back... I wish your family had been as lucky.
Always know you will never be forgotten and always be loved.
Love, Suzy Baker
