Dear Nanette: I remember John and yourself very clearly. I want to offer my condolences. All of us had wonderful times together. When you moved away, I wished we kept in touch with each other. I am a widow, Stanley passed away August 20th, 2007, from a terrible sonoma Cancer. This Cancer invaded his whole body. He died one month after his 73rd birthday. We were married 47 years, they were very happy years. ( God will take care of you.) Take care of your health and enjoy your children. My e-mail address is luceytoo@gmail.com. Please keep in touch with me. Love, Lila

Dear Nanette,
I just read about the passing of John and I just want to send my condolences to you and your family. I am remembering the many years we knew each other through IBM Kingston and Coach House Players. There were many fun times and John was always well-liked by many. So sorry to hear this news.........Terri Dwyer
