To Judy & Family, My deepest condolences on the passing of Boots. I know how much he was loved and appreciated. I love how Judy wrote: "Our veryest Best friend on Earth" when she told me in her letter. It is a blessing to see a long-married couple still so in love and devoted to one another. I'm glad for the time you had together. May happy memories bring comfort in time. Hugs to all. Love, Sue in New Jersey
