    DuDu and Lindsey, We were sorry to hear of John's passing. Kourtni has always spoke so highly of him. Then with all these weddings and parties we finally we able to meet him. And he was as wonderful as we had heard. We will also always remember yall letting us use the camp for the the girls the night before the wedding. He went above and beyond what he needed to do to get it ready.
    We will always cherish the picture of Dr Lee's three patient's.
    Please let us know if there is anything we can do for y'all. And DuDu we are not too far down the road at the river if you ever need Ray to do anything, don't hesitate to let us know. You two ladies are very special to our family.
    Love you both,
    Ray and Dana Altazan
