    Please accept my deepest sympathy. I have been looking for family members, and to discover that I am too late to reconnect is a true tragedy. I am sorry for you’re loss. Mike Smock, son of Charles Gary and Norma. I I know you heard of Norma’s passing in July of 2007, also my Sister Nancy died suddenly in July of 2009. It’s been while cleaning out her house that I’d come across some memories of Brad and Blaine.

    We kind of lost touch over the years. I’m sorry for that. But I understand you found happiness in life, and I’m glad for it. My best to Aunt Bonnie, and cousin Beckie…
