Rachel and David,

My deepest condolences. I actually tried to go to your mother's service today at Chandler's [Oct 6]. Needless to say, it didn't work. There was one other person there who had made the same mistake.

I will be out of town next weekend for a nephew's wedding in South Carolina but will be thinking of you all...and remembering what great people both of your parents were.

I called and left a message on your mom's home phone, figuring one of you would get the message. Don't have phone numbers for either of you.

I remember how supportive both of the Goorlands were when my husband Dan Frawley was mayor of Wilmington. What nice people! They both were great Wilmington supporters. I miss them!

Rachel & David:

Sad to hear of your Mom's passing. Her soul has been sent to a newborn somewhere and her Spirit will live on.

Losing your Mom leaves a big black hole deep inside and only time will help you get better in dealing with it. Take care of yourselves, the kids, your friends. You know that Big Momma would not have you mulling about with long droopy faces. Live Life, as your Mom did. Case closed.

All my best, Eric Campbell on behalf of Patrick Campbell
