Dear Sue and Beth - when we moved to the Chicago area, your family was the first to welcome us. We spent many wonderful
Christmas celebrations in your Lincolnshire home❤️ It was the first time we ever saw luminaries lining the streets - it is such a vivid memory for my first Christmas after leaving NYC, it made the move peaceful. Peter and I loved seeing your parents in Florida as they welcomed us into that home too. Our hearts are heavy for you. Xoxo Leslie
