  4. Kathleen: My heart aches with yours at the death of L.G. It was very special to get acquainted with you and L.G. and enjoy eating together at the Pisgah Fish Camp in Pisgah Forest. Such interesting stories you both would share about your years together, your careers and such special love you shared for each other. Grateful for the opportunity to get to share stories of our lives and spend special, quality time in conversation while we enjoyed the delicious food. You both will be remembered fondly.
