  4. Maddy you were awesome! I’d have first heard your laughter when Nancy Gray and I were toddlers, playing away together for hours-on-end in your care. Later, I came to understand your terrific sense of humour, as you were a dear friend of Sandra Lucas, my mother. You brought playfulness and joy into all of our lives, and I can’t imagine Underhill Drive without you.

    Al, I wish you all the courage you may need, and all the love that may sustain you.

    Nancy, I love you so much! -like a sister. I’ll be near you in spirit always. If you need ANYTHING, let me know.
