  1. Cort, I am so sorry to learn of Claire’s death. February 13 was my birthday and Vicki and I had gone to Mississippi on Feb. 10 for a charter trip and didn’t get home until this morning. It was too late by the time I got through the papers and saw the obit to make it to the funeral. I know what you must be going through but hang in there. Time helps but I still can’t believe Les has been gone 10 years. Love, Nancy

  2. Mrs. Warrington was my first grade teacher in what was, I believe, her first year of teaching at Anna P. Mote elementary school. Since I didn’t go to kindergarten, this was my first extended time away from “Mom”. We both made it through our first year, and I sincerely thank her for getting me off to a good start.

    I extend my sincere condolences to all members of your family.
