Dear Glen , I am so sorry for your loss, it is so difficult to loose a partner after so many years. I said a prayer for you and Kate and of course Karen , during my zoom church service today. I have so many happy memories of halloween parties at your house, and neighborhood new years eve parties, kate and Liz and jamie building snow forts in your front yard.
