Dear Roseanne, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I have thought of you many times over the years and wondered where you were and what you were doing. I have so many good memories of times spent with you and hoped you were having a good life. Gary sounded like a great guy and I am sure you will miss him terribly. Please take care.
Love, Nancy
