To: Sandy, Brenda and families. My deepest sympathy is extended to the whole family on the loss of a mother, grandmother (G) and great-grandmother Words cannot convey the heartbreak you are all feeling on the loss of this special person in your life. Remember and cherish the good times and hold them close as you struggle in the coming days. I remember when Donelda use to come into Dr. Mason's office and we would chat because Sandy and I have known each other for years and I was a regular visitor at Brenda's home tutoring her son. Cherish those good memories. Will be thinking about you all. Sharion Searle
