    Hi Dora and Linda, I was so sorry to see in the paper that John had passed away. He was such a nice guy. We sure had some good laughs when you all were coming into the clinic. I miss those days. Just wanted to you know I'm thinking about you. Just remember- when someone we love becomes a memory those memories become treasures. I hope those treasures will help you get through this difficult time. Carol
