Dear Eleanor, Janet, Bob, Karen and Paul - Vin and I cannot come in person to visit you, but you are all in our thoughts and prayers! I hold fond memories of our family get-togethers when we were young and will always happily remember the time Buzzy "locked Jeanne and me up." I know Buzz will be dearly missed; heaven has gained an angel.
