    Dear Holly and Cheryl. My heart goes out to all of you. You know how Close Lenore and I were. I remember going to Talbot Manor to visit your mom and Dad. May she Rest In Peace. She had a rough ending. You were so good to her Holly. I am here if you want to talk or come to the pool. I think of Lenore everytime I drive by her condo. I miss stopping in and talk to her.She always said I Love You Bev. May her memories be a blessing.
    Love to all of you!
