    Dear Linda, So many thoughts and prayers have been with you. How I wish we were closer. I really hope you've had support around you. I didn't know Dick well but I was "10:0c Donna" to him. It meant that Linda was not to call me after 10 p.m. I'll miss being "10:0c Donna".
    I know how much you'll miss him....he's happy, well and whole now
