Mary, I was so sorry to hear about Gary. It is so hard to lose a loved, one especially as long as you two have been together. I was sorry to hear about the Alzheimer's. That is a disease that eats you both away. Sherri and I was just talking about you the other day and was wondering of you was still teaching school and then a week or so later we saw the obituary. I am always a few days behind on the newspaper so I missed everything, reading the papers on Wednesday later. If I had seen it sooner I would have been at the viewing. I would love to see you. Please know how sorry I am and please tell Mike and Tom also. Take care, always Jeanne
