    Cynthia and Dennis,
    My thoughts and prayers. Your father was a wonderful uncle to so many of us. He was very very special to me. I’m so glad I was home in March. On leaving for the airport I quickly made one more stop at his apartment for a hug and a final “love you, take care.”
    I will miss him much! Love, Jeannie
