I have been thinking of you and Phil over the weeks.

I was planning to come down this afternoon but decided I need to stay with Bob. He was recently diagnosed with cancer and starts his treatments Tuesday. Sometimes, he gets confused, and I&m not sure what he will do. Unfortunately, today is one of those days.

Hope to see you soon. Missed you at the end of the "season."

Dear Amy,
What a joy it has been to be your neighbors! Sparky was the "light" of the neighborhood and, I believe, self-proclaimed keeper of all the goings-on. He could always fill us in on what was happening, who was doing what, who had what car, and who wasn&t behaving themselves. He is in a much better place, but will be greatly missed!

You have been a wonderful "saint" during his illness. Rest assured you did all the right things to make his final days as comfortable as possible. You are a strong, amazing woman and the Lord will give you the strenght to carry on. Allow yourself to grieve - you need to. We are here for you and will do whatever we can to help you through this process.

We love you,
Norm and Susie
