Message:  Dorothy,

If it's any more comfort, you, as I are fortunate to have a friend like Ginny holding her arms out for us.

I don't know why what she said moved me so much, but it is something about turning a tragedy like this to something for which we can strengthen ourselves. The pain you feel, Dorothy is what accompanies our willingness to be alo we are supposed for our children.

To come back to the porch for me was a leap of faith in myself and in the people who have been here all along.

To have Ginny and you here on my return is my reward for having befriended, among others, two such wanderful ladies.

And, of course, thank ypo Mickey, for this. Your vision goes well beyond your mortality.

Dorothy, your life and those of others, are much better off for having Richie be a part of it for such an all too brief time. Rejoice and do not hesitate to remember the very good times he shared with you.

You are strengthen by this. So be strong.

Love from Jeff
