I'm very sorry to see you go. It was much too soon but I guess he felt like it was time to go see Ross. I'll always remember the good times you me and char had sitting around the table in the kitchen in Elmhurst drinking coffee talking and laughing. Those are memories that I will always have and many more over the 59 years that I have known her and I even called her mom
