Dear Ginny,
We want you to know how much we enjoyed your friendship; and how much fun there was in that friendship. Tennis was just a matter of laughs with a few good shots and points on both sides. And skiing! That was a blast! From the back bowls (not Milt's Face or High line) to The Berries (and everthing in between) and a safe return to Pepe's Porch via Bear Tree. White wine was your choice. And your invitation for a toddy on the deck at your condo was always eagerly accepted. To see Allison, then, was such a pleasure (she was such an image of our Jenni); and the way she would snuggle up to us on the couch.

You and Al were such a perfect couple. And we know how much comfort and support you provided for each other. Allison was so lucky to have parents with the dedication ane love you gave her.

Ginny, we are missing you; but the memories we have are priceless. Enjoy your journey and we will see you, again.

Much love - to Al and Allison, too.

Jane and Randy
