Dear Alice, Michelle, Christina, Doug, Adam, Megan and Alyssa; I write this with heavy heart. I was so surprised to hear about George's passing. My Dad told me. I asked if he was going to the funeral, but he said it is too much for him at his age. I wish I could attend. I am in Florida for the winter and won't be returning to CT until mid April and then head back to VT. I have many fond memories of George. He always brought a smile to my face. And I am eternally grateful for Alice and George hosting parties at their house to keep the family in touch. We are all so spread out these days. It was so much easier when Grammie was alive and we could all meet at her house. How nice that Michelle is close by. I can't begin to know the hurt you must be feeling. You are all in my heart and prayers. And I hope to see you sometime in the near future. Peace and Love, Lynn and Moe
