Rachel, Amber and Elizabeth,

I'm sorry to hear of your grandfather's passing. I remember how supportive he was when you were studying piano with me. I also remember the pride and joy when you performed in the recital.
God's peace,

Mrs. Galbraith

I am so sorry to hear of Don's passing. He and Betty were friends through Sunday School at Garfield Park Baptist Church and even though years have passed we stayed in touch especially until Betty passed. I have many good memories of both of them.
