    My dear Padua classmate, I was stunned to read about your death in Sunday's News Journal. Just before I left for Lewes for a week, you, Susie and I had planned to have lunch at Stanley's, until the weather disagreed with us. Now I wish we hadn't cancelled so I could have enjoyed your company one more time before God called you home. I will miss you, dear friend. Our Padua lunches won't be the same without you.
