Dear Gwen – My heart goes out to you at this sad time. I fondly recall the fun times we shared as “Wordies” at FUMC, and we still play the old 33-1/3 long-play records you & Ken so thoughtfully shared with us when you graduated to CDs. My special love to you and your family.

We were sorry to hear about Ken. We enjoyed playing bridge with him.
