To Jon. Please accept my sincere condolences with the loss of your beloved wife. When I saw Anns highschool picture, I immediately remembered her. I don't know if you and she ever went to our class reunions. But we did share one of the most memorable years of my life at Meadville Senior High School. My thoughts are with Ann and with you and I just lit a candle for her. With kind regards, Yvonne Mulder, The Netherlands
