  7. To the whole family, especially Amy, I’m sorry about your loss. Twin, I’ll never forget how your grandma used to confuse us when we were little. It makes me laugh when I think back to how she used call me Amy and start telling me something, then realize her mistake halfway though her sentances. She would then start laughing and tell us we looked too much alike. I’m glad that we have this fond memory of your grandma to hold onto.

  8. We are co-workers of Jean Fields…please accept our sincerest condolences, and may God bless your entire family at this difficult time. Pam & Charlie
