When I was told the news last night, I was very upset that I had not been told sooner and that I could not pay my respects to you and to Anne. You were a really sweet and fun person and I will miss you very much. Anne, I am so very sorry for this and please know....He talked about u often. I only got to know him for a few months when I lived with Heidi Vernoy and he would come over with a friend. I know that he loved you and was proud of you...
