    Dana, I hope you get to read this. I loved your Mom and Dad. They were so close and loved you very much. It has been years since I saw either of them, but they remain in my heart. It is very hard to lose one parent, but my heart goes out to you with the loss of both of them. (I was the General Manager of Howard Johnson”s, where they washed the windows as a side job). Sending love and hugs of comfort!
