Dear Linda, I was very saddened to hear about Rich. Please know how very sorry I am for your loss. You two were the perfect couple - I can see you both dancing now - like Fred & Ginger. I have been thinking of you lately - but life gets in the way. I cannot take away your pain, but i can listen if you want to talk. We may not have seen each other for a while, but I think of you often. Please lets get together soon. Call or text me my number is 978-807-7371 When your heart is empty, fill it with happy memories they cannot be erased. Peace and prayers to you and your family. Betty Csogi
