My dearest Nancy. You were my very best friend for more than 50 years. No day went by in my life that I did not think of you. Any time we spent together was great fun. Lately we talked most often by text message. Not good like being there, but considering the distance, it worked.

We can never forget our fabulous trip to Costa Rica in 2015. What a great time that was thanks to our friend Sherri.

I will cherish all memories for the rest of my life.

Love you always,

Dear Rab and family, sitting here and thinking of all of you. I will always remember the many wonderful dinners and conversations we had at your home. Nancy's biscotti were the best in the world.
