Mrs. Cromer, Deborah and Bill-

I am so saddened to hear Mr. Cromer has passed away. I have so many wonderful memories with your family. He was such a wonderful caring man and so kind to me. Like my second father. Oddly your family has been on my mind this week. I guess now I know why. Please know I share deeply in your loss and love each one of you. I’m sorry I haven’t stayed in touch like I should but it’s not because I have forgotten. Your family is always close to my heart. Love to you all.
