Jeanne, Don, Jr., and Kay,
I am so sorry for the loss of your dad! It has been about 45 years since I’ve seen you guys. I pray life has been good to you all. I lost my brother Joe in 1981, mama in 2008 and daddy in 2016. Ray, Ben, and Tammy are all well. We all live in the Durham area. I have been married to Tyson Laney 27 years. (Don should know Tyson). Would love to hear from you all. We have fond memories of your family.
