Dear K.T and family,

Ron and I were terribly saddened to learn of the passing of Madhu. She and I became friends after meeting at the pool at the FitClub. I always looked forward to joining her in the hot tub afterwards for a visit. She was a lovely person and I will miss seeing her there. We send our deepest sympathy.
