    Linda, Cindy, Ron and Denny…. I’am so sorry to learn of the passing of Aunt Maggie. I didnt find out till early today when I was reading a old newspaper at my patients house. I definately would have been there had I known sooner. I was already at work so I couldnt make the service and I feel really bad about it. .. I loved Aunt Maggie alot. She was a great person for me to talk to because she understood the family issues. I tried to send her cards from time to time until they we returned to me so she knew I was always thinking about her. I have alot of good memories of her (and your dad also). I hope its some comfort that she meant alot to so many people. She will be greatly missed. I hope everyone is doing ok. I miss seeing everyone. Again, I’am so sorry I didn’t find out sooner
