To the family: May the comfort from family and friends continue to strengthen you, and may you find comfort in the words found in the Holy Scriptures: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."
It was so good to see you during the holidays. I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and your parents, especially your mom.
Dear Tlaloc: You may not remember me but you were my doctor when I lived in N.O. I lost my own mother at her age 96 on April 25, 2007. I am so sorry for your loss. No one will ever know the tragedy of Katrina unless they lived or have lived in New Orleans. Unfortunately, it appears I will never return to N.O. because of old age and infirmity. When you hear the song "Do You Know What It Means, to Miss New Orleans", think first of your Mom and then of me. They wrote that song for people like us even if we are looking back from Heaven.

Tlaloc You probably won't remember me, I posed for Enrique in N.O. when
you were a little girl. I hadn't seen him or Peggy for many years, I
was living in N.Y.C., but I visited N.O. and City Park last week and of
course I thought of your family, and the time you all lived around the
corner from me on Frenchman Street. Anyway, my best wishes to you, I
was so sorry to hear about Peggy's death, but I know she was proud of
you. I am old too, now, but I will never forget Rique and Peggy and
that beautiful little girl, their daughter. If you would like to get in
touch with me I am in Ala. now, 251-928-1786. I live in Oaxaca part of
the year, and would love to see you either here in the States or at my
house in Maxico. Billye Timbes
Dear Tlaloc (Dr. A),
I am in shock after learning of Peggy's demise. She was truly an extraordinary woman. May God give you the strenght as you now carry on the family legacy. Please know that you are in my thoughts and in my prayers. I miss you and all of the family of Touro. All my love, Connie
