Jenny - I was saddened to learn of your dad's illness and passing. Though I haven't seen him in years, I have fond memories of our times together - from the hurricane game at Bill's stadium to shared trips to NYC. Plus, we almost shared a birthday. I'm May 14 to his 15. My thoughts are with you and the family during this sad, difficult time. May memories of the good times you shared with him sustain you now and for the years to come.

My dear Candi, It seems like only yesterday that I stood with you as you and Roger said your marriage vows. May the light of the love that shone from both of you that day continue to bring warmth to your days and memories of the wonderful life you had together.
