  1. Dan and family…I am so sorry for your loss. bebe was extraordinary and such a wonderful lady. Many hugs and prayers for you all during this rough time.

  2. I am SO sorry! I have been trying unsuccessfully to reach you since MAY (all my emails to you were returned!). And I am sorry that it is to share this sorrow that I have found you again, but glad that I have. I remember your mother’s smile – mischievous and quirky. And I can still hear her voice and her laugh. It is a happy memory among many. I send love. Claudia
