Jasen and Family, A very gracious and kind lady is now in the hands of our heavenly father. I am so sorry that I didn't find out in time to be at your grandmother's funeral. Ms. Rochelle was very kind to me the times I visited you at her home. She was so proud of your guitar playing, Jasen. I remember her saying your style of playing was just like Johnny Cash. I think of you often and you are in my prayers. I pray that God will give all of you peace and comfort during this very sad time. Respectfully, Sandy aka Mimi Holder
