Daniel and I have become friends with David and Virginia at the Clayton Legion. They always gazed at each other as true partners for life. They will probably be forever we hope. What a great woman and gracious to new friends. We'll miss her and hope that David will let all of his friends kick in when needed for help. Dan and Carol Mossien - Legion friends
