    You may not remember me, but I’m sure your dad spoke of us. My mom Mildred, and I lived with you, your dad and Gary for a time when you were small. We helped to look after you and keep house for your family. I learned to ride a bike in your basement and fly downThornspring Rd. Mom always loved you and continued to speak of you often. I did not know that your dad had passed until I was looking at the SW Times online. My mom passed away on March 14 from leukemia. I miss her everyday as I’m sure you miss your dad. Please know that my sympathies go out to you and your family, and that there was a special place in our hearts for Robert, Gary and “little Jackie”. With sympathy, Betty Ann Brandis (Kernersville, NC)
