  1. Dear Dot, I am so sorry for your loss. I will not forget the twinkle in Bob’s eyes when he told me how you two first met. He saw you on the school bus and couldn’t take his eyes off of you! It was a sweet story and you two were a lovely couple. Rita made the announcement today at the Wednesday bridge session. My bridge partner, Audrey and I always enjoyed chatting and playing bridge with the two of you. With sympathy, Susan Kazanjian
