    Often wondered about your mom. When your dad was on BlueBird (as well as my mom), I visited with your mom often, as well as Wildflower. So sorry for your loss. May she Rest In Peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. PS my mom is still on Juniper

    My Deepest Sympathy to the Hexum family. I’m thinking of all the good times I had with Keith and Lucy. Working with Lucy at New Richmond Industries, visiting with them on the front porch for many years. Such a happy couple. Prayers are with you all.
