My list is sent. Do you realize you have some duplicate #s? There are 155 names but some of the #s are skipped & some are double. Just want to make sure everyone checks the name not the #. Just realized the ones that are the same # have the same amount of money.
Barb
wife to 1
Mom to Six
Mother in Law to 2
Grandma to 4
