I always notice anything that has the name Hixon attached to it. I’m sorry to read that you lost another sister. I didn’t know about the first one until today. I think of you often. I don’t know if you are aware that Bruce died in 1995. Please let me hear from you.
I’m one of Shannon’s Chi Omega sisters and i just wanted to let her know that i am thinking about her and her family at this incredibly hard time. you are in my prayers and i know that your mother must have been remarkable just by knowing shannon.
We were so sorry to hear of Peggy’s death . We didn’t know until late afternoon and we had just returned from Hendersonville.It isn’t possible for us to make it to the funeral so we wanted you to know how very sorry we are.
We love you,
Tressalee and Sondra
