Janice & Jeana -

I wish I could be there in person to tell you how sorry I am. What wonderful memories growing up with all of you, and Fred's disarming and wonderful sense of humor and his generosity and kindness to my family. You are in my thoughts often, and especially now. It seems like yesterday that we were riding around in your V. Rabbit, Jeana (that Fred always made sure was in tip top shape). I would love so much to see you both. All my love to you! LeAnn
