    Hi Effie: I just learned about Gloria’s passing and wanted to let you know I’m thinking about you and your family. It’s hard to lose a sister, I know. I lost my brother last year.

    I hope you’ re doing well. It looks like our class will have a reunion in the fall. I hope to attend but that’s a little up in the air right now.

    Fondly with love and hugs, Harold
