Thank you so much for remembering us with the Easter goodies. That is so thoughtful of you. My nerves are so “frayed” at the moment; your visit and the thoughtfulness couldn’t have happened at a better time. Say “hello” to Wallace and I hope we can all get together soon. William joins me in saying thanks.
