Dear Jane Ann,
So sorry to read about your husband. But I must say, what a long and lovely life you had together, a true blessing. My sincere condolences.
I now live in Chiang Mai, Thailand and will probably live out my life here.
I always have pleasant thoughts about you and Mike.
Always your friend, Jim
