    Dear Ben, I have only just heard of your Dad”s death. Tony was my first cousin and although we have not seen each other for many years we kept in touch. He was a truly lovely man and in our youth we were close friends, I send you my heartfelt sympathy at this time. I guess that makes us second cousins, Tony”s Mother was my Mothers sister. Take care of yourself. Love Daphne (known as Diane)
