Maureen: I’ve stumbled across this news, quite accidentally, and Dave and I are in shock. I was just thinking about you and Rob last week. How did we lose touch? I would love to connect with you if you’d like. Please reach out when you are ready. You can reach me by this email. I’m truly so very sorry for your loss and I can lend a fresh ear if needed. We have wonderful memories of you and Rob and Kensington market, our wedding and your wedding! Take good care of yourself. I know these are very early days. - Gillian
