    I was saddened to read of Robert’s death. Even though I never knew him well, I felt I did through your talk of him at the bank. As a relatively newly married, I was always so struck by the relationship you and Robert seem to have. I remember hoping that when Mike and I had been married as long as you, we could have that kind of marriage. Your eyes always brightened when you talked about Robert and I bet they still do. I know his loss will leave a tremendous gap. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
