Dearest Emil and Donna, I will miss my friend and our weekly dinners and birthday celebrations. I want you to know how lucky I am that we met and shared so many laughs and good times. There will always be a place in my heart for her. May she rest in peace and spend some good times with her family in heaven along with Jerry! Lots of love, Anne

EmilI am so sorry for the loss of your lovely wife, but Im so glad she is no longer suffering. I received your voicemail today, but was just so broken-hearted that I couldnt find the words to return your phone call. It was a pleasure getting to know Carol briefly before she became ill. You are a wonderful person, and you know I look forward to that garage door opening up every 2 weeks, so that I can chat with my buddy. Have safe travels and celebrate her life with your family, and please let me know if I can help out in any way. Cheesy breadsticks are on me when you get back home! Your friend, Brent
