Margaret and I have been good friends for many years now. In fact, she is like a sister to me. It was through her that I had the great pleasure of meeting her wonderful father, Mr. Bartholow. I was always intrigued by his thirst for life and his paintings. His laughter and incredible smile left lasting impressions. To my dear Margaret and the entire family, please know you are in my prayers daily. Much love, Roz
