Larry and Family, please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers at this time. We always enjoyed chatting with Donna during your Maine vacations. She was so gracious and caring. My mom thought she was really special. We think of you both when we so often walk by Rest A Bit on our way to the Warrens’ camp.
Much love, Bruce and Camilla
