Notice: Hello,

I would like to get a message to Suzie J. Styles - I would like to know if she lived in Tucson, AZ, studying at the University of Arizona in the mid-70's. I was one of her housemates and have often thought of her and decided to see if I could find her to say hello. If she is, and does not want to connect. Send my blessings.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Patricia C. Coleman RSMT
