my dear sweet friend

Kathy, I just now found about your Mom and I am heartbroken.  We knew each other over 50 years and she was one of my best friends,  I wish I had known in time to be there for you.  If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.  Dolly was a special, wonderful person.  I will miss her until I see her again. I loved her.
