Jeff and I had many good times with Aunt Marie. She was always game to try out new things and we had lots of fun traveling with her in Greece. Too many memories too mention but Jeff made a comment last night that he was always amazed by her. One minute she would misplace her passport and the next have a high level conversation about nuclear waste! We will miss her and her ironing!

Both your mom and dad were good friends of my parents. Dad died in Sept. 08 and mom wasn’t far behind Jan. 09. They spoke about the fun they had with all the people from the university. I know what you are going through and remember all the good time. My best to all of you Leora Link Caporaletti
