Dear Gil and Family,
It was a sad day reading today's Courant and learning of Marion's (Babe's) passing. Memories of life with your loved ones are the key to give you the strength to go on each day. Remember them as only you can and always know she will be with you forever. Although the days ahead may be difficult, time will heal the pain you and your family are feeling today.
