    I am so sorry for your loss. I did not get to know her for long, but I got to like her very much during the time she was here. We both got along very well and had the opportunity to spend some quiet time on the back deck together on a couple of comfortable summer nights….
    I, like many others in Hudson, will miss her.
    You are all in my prayers.
    God bless you
