Sorry to see one of our classmates go so young. My mom was interred at the same Serenity place in Largo.

Dear Debbie:
I am so very sorry for your great loss. I changed email addresses and transferred most of my Comcast email messages to an unused yahoo account. I changed my email primary address to a gmail account because we sold out home in Michigan.

I was reviewing some of my spam mail and found the Death Notice of Vince. I feel just terrible that I wasn't able to comfort and send my sympathies before now. I might have been able to make it to the services if I hadn't lost the email. Please send me your email address so I can email you directly.

It is hard to believe that Vince is gone....we were the same age too. I am so very. very sorry. All My Love and Blessings, Rhoda

Dear Debbie So sorry about Vince. I don't think I'll ever forget the Highland Games we watched together in Ca. Remember the Shortbread Vince bought for us? The sun shone us as I'm sure your wonderful memories will shine in your heart. I'll see you in Kingston. Love and hugs Peggy
