James, Don, Gloria, and Nadine,

Jimmy and I send our heartfelt condolences to your family. She was a fun loving sweet lady and I know you all are hurting with this loss.
Our prayers and love to you ❤️
I (BJ) sure enjoyed playing golf with her too! She always told me all I needed was a 5 iron and a putter!
