    Dear Phyllis, thank you for all the good memories: when we first met you and Stan after your arrival to Kitsap County, your visits to us at Fort Myers Beach, your meatloaf dinners for Bill (he died 3/20), our holiday dinners at the beach, and many phone calls. Hope you, Stan, and Bill are enjoying meeting wherever you are. See you soon. Love always, Elise
