To Jody and all her family,

I was so sad to hear of your dad's passing.  I know how much you loved him.  You are so family oriented and your family has really had some devastating blows in the past couple of years.  I just wanted to let you know I am thinking of all of you. I feel I know each of you through Jody. I worked with Jody at Shriners and through her I learned about you all. I am sending my thoughts and prayers. I pray all the good memories of your dad can fill your hearts with joy.
Love Mimi

Cindy, although our busy lives have kept us from being close over the years, I've always loved the Cline family. I only remember Gary from our school days and regarded him as a lucky guy to have you. Having a great family, like your's and Gary's, is a precious thing in times like these. God bless!
