    Karon, David & I were so sorry to learn of of your dad’s passing. Of all the time we have known you, we didn’t know that you were Gordon’s daughter. David’s dad, Buford, and your dad were first cousins. You probably knew that, and I’m sure Sherry did, but David didn’t realize it until now. You will be our thoughts and prayers as deal with your loss.
