    My husband Steve and Jewett were good friends in high school and in recent years. Steve enjoyed their phone calls to one another. Steve died last Aug. And Jewett drove up to his funeral. I appreciated his kindness so much. He even called to see how I was doing. My deepest sympathy to you Linda and to your children.
