Mary, it has been a lot of years that have gone by and I hope that you remember me from our days at George C. Wallce. Grace e-mailed me to let me know that your husband had passed away. I wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and to express by sympathy in his passing. Take care and maybe one of these days Grace, you and I can see each other once again. Maggie
