Sorry for your loss. Jesse and Shirley McAden, March 28, 2021 Vicki, I know we aren’t close & have rarely seen each other as adults; but we’ve known each other since the sixth grade when y’all lived on Federal & you owned your pretty Chow “Ming”. So I do care about you & have been glad to tell you “Hi!” when we have run into each other over the years. I will always wish you & your sons well. Your dad was always a very nice man to me & I know he loved you & your sons VERY much! I am very sorry to hear about his passing & I’m also sorry to hear your mom has previously passed. You will be in my thoughts & prayers as you go through this very difficult time. Sincerely,
Tiffany , March 27, 2021
