I am sorry to hear of the loss of your husband Robert.
I am a long lost cousin fro Long Island now living in Montana.
I know we had not spoken or seen each since childhood but I have fond memories of those days playing in our pool all together as cousins.
I wish you peace and comfort in days ahead.
