    Dear sweet Susan and family,

    My heart goes out to you. Please, please, please in the weeks and months to come, if you need ANYTHING, or just want to talk, let me know; my door is always open to you. After my mom died, you and String Connection were there for me... It would be such an honor to return the favor. So much love. So many prayers. So much gratitude for everything beautiful that you shared together. Will be listening to some Bach in your honor.

    "For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."

    143, Susan.

    Dear Susan & family, Ralph & I will be thinking of you on Thursday. So glad I played matchmaker 21 years ago. Bob was lucky to have you & your children to embrace him all these years. I am sure you feel you were lucky to have him in your lives. Glad you have your music to keep you busy. Hugs to all of you!
