  1. Dear Mr. McDonald,
    Hello, I am Stride Coleman’s sister,Donna. I’m sure you know about him passing in December.
    I brought all his belongings back to Texas and been going through some things and found your cook book you sent him.
    I was just wondering if you were in the Army with him?
    I see where you live in Big Lake and we are not far from each other..
    You have some really good recipes.

  2. Hi Donna, I went to school with Stride many years ago at AMA. We were good friends and I was saddened to hear of his passing. My condolences to you and your family.
