Dear Rosemarie and family,
A handwritten note is preferred, I know you are on Hunter, but I don’t have the number.
The thought that Dr. K. Is no longer with us, is so sad. He has helped me so much. I worked in the same building and he would come up and send faxes and we formed a friendship. Later, when things became unbearable at Wimco, I became a patient, and our sessions were so precious to me. His humor, thoughtfulness, and the way he spoke about you, his family, touched me deeply. I will miss him so much.
I wish you strength and hope that the wonderful memories will bring a smile to your faces.

Dear Rosemarie and Family,
So sorry to hear the news of Jim's passing. He was such a wonderful man, and Alexis always enjoying seeing him at breakfast in the Concierge Lounge at the Hyatt in Washington DC. They had many great conversations while you and I were in conference. We will both miss him, and send you and your family "hugs" during these difficult times..
