Sympathy Messages

From: Lexy Cool
Hey Grams, 
I found out today Aunt Donna isn't doing well. It's making me think of you. I love you were one of the shining lights in my life and you're gone. Randy walked out of my life decades ago. Jeeze now do I feel old. I have no idea if Dad or Corrine will read this or what but Corrine really did call it when she said you and Randy were kindred spirits and with you gone and Randy out of my life I feel a little like when dad threw that anchor off the boat and we lost it...I feel like I'm trying to find something to anchor me. I miss you so much. It's crazy but Adam & I are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary soon...I miss you Grams. Love you. And dad & Corrine if you do read these...I love you both. If it's some stranger, sorry but sometimes I feel like I need to talk to her.
