Dennis, I am so sorry to hear about Leah's passing. Terri called me this morning and told me. I am living in NC now and hadn't heard. She was a lovely person and will be missed.

I fondly remember going through high school with you and Leah (and Dave). Those were the good times when nothing could get to us. We graduated and the world slammed us right between the eyes. I miss you guys and those care free days. I hope you are taking care of yourself and remember there are people who sincerely care.
