Dear Ramey Family,
  I am sad to hear about Jon’s death.  I hadn’t seen him for a few years., but nonetheless, when I did happen to see him,  he was always smiling and remembered me.  Nelson I hope you are doing well and I wish my Jonathon was still here to see you. It’s very sad when your loved  one dies at a young age.   I live in the same area, Danville , just down the road from Cindy.   Again my sympathy and prayers are sent to all the family and friends.    Kathe Quartier. ??
