Dear Mary, I am so very, very sorry for the loss of your child. I wish I could be there to hug you and hold you and comfort you. Although it's been many years since I've been back home, you and your family was a great part of my life back then. You know I've always considered you my sister-in-law (through Lou's brother,Jimmy Allen), and I'm glad that we've been able to stay in touch with each other through the years.Please take comfort in knowing that Sonny is happy and healthy and with God now, enjoying peace and blessings. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers always. My deepest sympathies to you and yours. God Bless You. Marilyn Heiges
