Anne, my dear old friend, my heart aches for you because I know you've lost a great love. I barely knew Randy, but the evening I spent with the 2 of you I certainly enjoyed my conversation with Randy (I think we dominated the evening with it). He was an intelligent, interesting and, by all accounts, a good man and his death is a great loss.

My thoughts, prayers and love go to all of you.
