"Cleo, weather is preventing us from paying tribute to Juneva but she has been in my thoughts and prayers since learning of her passing. I wonder if you remember when you were very little and I used to stop at your house and walk to school with you. That memory popped into my head soon after I heard Juneva was gone from us.
