Re: [MOL] Linda's Dad



Thank you Joicy for letting us know about Linda's father.  It is fitting
that you will be doing his service and I know it will be beautiful.  I will
write Linda later, when she gets home, she doesn't need a zillion e-mails
right now.  Do tell her of my regrets.  lillian

love,

>The irony for me is that I met this wonderful family a number of years ago
