    • Sharla Kay was my niece and I loved her. Had not gotten to see her much for several years. That’s one of the saddest parts of families breaking up from death or divorce. I have the recording s she and tommy made and I will cherish them Gwen and I went through high school together. She was loved by everyone and was a joy to be around.
      There is mno pain like the pain of losing a child. My Dona has been gone for 6 years. It still hurts so bad. I wish you and tommy would come for a visit. I live in San Marcos texsssdont like it much but I’m thankful to be warm and dry. I will include my phone number and say bye for now
      Know you have my love and concern
