Condolences on the passing of a beautiful lady . I saw her on almost every visit to Westport. One not that long ago. She always shared a smile and a chat. I have beautiful memories of my days teaching there and of her. May God give you comfort and peace in these very difficult days. You are in my thoughts and players
