    Barb so sorry to hear about Gerry. Marta let me know about it. Must have been a shock for you. Hope you are well and can get through this difficult time with support of you family. I am enjoying retirement.
    Playing tennis,gardening, walking dog. Jeff’s parents both died this spring his dad in April his mom in June. Not Covid related but unable to visit his mom until she was unconscious. Made it very lonely for her being in hospital for several months. You gave me a good hug when my dad died and I won’t forget that. Afraid hugs are hard to come by these days. Glad he got to hospice where I assume you could visit and he was comfortable. Thanks Hope your service goes well. Kathy Parker
