Dear Clary,
It's been 30 yrs. since we saw you both but when I read of Carl's passing, I just cried. What a lovely man he was and you the perfect partner. We will never forget your friendship and support for us and our little theatre all those years ago. How lucky we were to have had you and Carl in our lives at that time. How sad that he is gone, but what wonderful memories you will always have.
We loved you both.
