Dear Nan The death if your Dear Mother is sad, but she is at Peace finally. It was very hard for me to see her so debilitated and it surely must have been exhausting for you. I will write personally to you, some of my early memories of your Mom, who was a very important mentor to me! With our love, Catolyn & Stuart
