I am so sorry, Pat, to learn of Danny’s passing.  We knew he has been heading that direction for many months, but that makes it no less hard for you to bear, or his family and many friends.  You certainly gave your all to make his last days as good as possible.  You two were blessed to find each other and enjoy sixty-some years of love and companionship!  My condolences also to your granddaughters and their families and to the Mendoza family – their love and support is a tremendous asset. I  will see you Saturday …
Love, Jo
