Dear Judy,
I can't believe that after all these years, I've located you and at such a terrible time for you. Larry and I want to send our thoughts along with our sympathy to you and your family. I see you have a child in Merrimack. We have a son in Bedford. Small world. I remember well the silly times we had at Keene, and also going into your Dad's Mill End store with you. Do take care of yourself and know we are thinking of you.
Our sympathy,
Jane Barnard Twitchell, KTC
