Billy, Angela, and Mrs. Ann, I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Sanders. I know Billy and Angela how hard it is to loose a Daddy. You are in my thought and prayers. Your Dad was a wonderful man. Mrs. Ann, It is my prayer that God sends you peace and comfort. I can't image how hard it is to loose a brother so close to Mr. Jerry's home going. Know I love you dearly. Blessings to all
