Dear Rosie: It was such a joy to have met you during your visits with your husband. To see such devoted love made the world seem brighter in our dark times. Fran loved you with all his heart and shared that with me once. May there come a day that the tear in your eye be replaced with a smile on your lips. Take care with love, Marie
