Dear Manya,
I have such fond memories of all the good times spent with you and Hal. I think back of all the dinner parties, the laughter, the camaraderie, and it should leave us with nice warm feelings. I think of Hal and how much he contributed to all our fun. I always admired his intelligence and he always had interesting things to talk about. I know that all the beautiful memories that fill your heart help to bring you comfort.
