    Doris - Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I will never forget that you and David took the time to call me when I was watching my 13 mo. old granddaughter MaryKate while my daughter Kristin and son-in-law Rob had to leave Maryland to follow the new baby Maggie to the Children's Hospital in Washington, D. C. because of complications. You and David called me to ask if there was anything you could do for us and to tell me that things were going to be OK. We were a close group in the backyard years ago and that night you showed me how special the two of you were. As is turned out Maggie is a healthy and happy 16 yr. old today. David was a good man and he loved you and his family.
