We lived in Sleepy Hollow, too, for 20 years and loved seeing Clyde and Mary at The Gentry and Sleepy Hollow functions and parties. And Mary and I had ballet classes "as grownups" at Elinor Fry's studio on Greenway Lane. Life was grand! I cherish those memories...
May your many happy memories help you through the days ahead, too.
Remembering Mary and thinking of you with love and sympathy,
