    Cheryl and Mrs. Medford, I am so sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of times spent at your home, the barn, and horse shows. Your family was like a second family to me when we were children. I will have you both in my prayers for peace and God's strength during this difficult time. I am leaving on a business trip on Saturday morning, therefore I will not be able to attend Dr. Medford's memorial, but I will be thinking and praying for you. Love and God Bless, Jennifer and Family

    Frank and I were very close during our teen years.Even tho we were first cousins, we were more like brothers.I have wished many times that we could have remained that close but life doesn't always give that choice.I'll miss you old friend.
