    Anne and I want to extend our condolences to your families. I think Robert was the last of that generation in our family so now we’re the senior group.

    I wish you the best in the upcoming years and certainly the best in health.

    I would like the request your contact information if you would be so kind. I don’t participate in social media so I have lost track on how to reach you if we ever needed to communicate.

    God Bless
