    Ted and Annette: As you will recall from grade school science class, there are stars in the heaven whose light does not reach Earth until they themselves are extinguished; and, similarly, there are people who continue to light up this world long after they have passed from it. Your Mom was such a person. The stories she told, the lessons she taught, the role model she was will cause her to live on long after her passing. May the memory of your Mom be an eternal blessing to all of us who were honored and privileged to know and love her. Scott and Shelley Kaplan

    Dear Teddy and Linda, I am heartbroken - I just left a message on her phone yesterday. I hope she received my last card and knew how much I loved her. Our last luncheon she said "this might be the last time we see each other girlfriend". What an honor to know her! If you want me to have Ray, I will take him. Please call me if you can: 727-724-4400.
