    Connie I am so sorry to hear about Bob. I miss seeing you all around town, but hope you have been happy in your new place. I don’t have any idea what your address is, so thought I would try to let you know this way and hope you get it. It’s a tough time you’re facing, but hopefully your kids will be close enough to help you. Please take care of yourself and know you have friends who are willing to help in any way.
