Maggie and Roger --

We were so sorry to read about Kerry in the paper, sorrier still that we didn't read it until last night after returning from our winter get-away, so we missed her "celebration of Life" service yesterday.  I know how wonderfully creative Kerry was and that you no doubt also have creative memories to cherish. Our thoughts are with you.
