    Sue & Lee,

         Bob and I extend our deepest sympathy.  We will miss Georgia so very much.  She was a very special friend to us.  We still treasure our memory when you came with her to visit us in Port Washington.  We remember so many wonderful times we shared with Tom and Georgia.  We are so sorry we can not be there to see both of you.  We will keep everyone in our thoughts and prayers.
