    Dear Linda,

    I had seen your Mother out shopping in the last few years. It was always a treat to run into her. My father, Sid and I send deepest sympathy. Your parents were such extraordinary, lovely people, And I remember your Mom’s parents as well, in Gilmer Park, after they moved to the house closer to Science Hill
