LuAnn - We are so sorry for your loss. Although we never really got acquainted as neighbors - we enjoyed what time we did have to visit with Gary, over coffee downtown & with both of you at the Cancer Center. We're just across the back lot from you so don't hesitate to give us a call if you need anything or just want to "porch sit" and visit.
