|Message:||Sarah Jane and I went to school at Banks together, had not seen each other or connected since 6th grade, until a few years ago. We had lunch in Dallas , I am forever thankful for that lunch date. We talked often on phone and of course emailed. We both looked forward to being together again talking old times. Loved doing that on the phone with her. Big D, take care of yourself without your Mom.|
