    Harold, Rachel and family: just read in the paper about the loss of your daughter. I am so sorry for your loss and our prayers and thoughts are with you at this time. May God give you comfort and strength to get through this trying time. In case you don’t remember me I worked in several of the offices at mmc the last 13 being in personnel. I went into personnel when Sparky retired. Jim my husband was manager in spinning. Just wanted you to know we were thinking of you.
