      Judy it has been many years but I remember so many good times with you and primping in your mom’s shop. Our moms were good friends and I know you you took care of her when she had cancer. I also took care of my mom when she had cancer. I have thought about you through the years and hope you are doing well. Your old friend , patsy Irwin jones

        Patsy! So great to hear from you! Jim and I were just speaking of you the other day as we have often through the years. Where are you living? I did see your aunt one time in Cottonwood but even that was several years ago and I’ve even lost touch with her.
