    I am so sorry to hear the sad news of Christy’s death. I happened to see Richard Dickerson’s post on facebook today and a thousand memories came flooding back. Please know you and your family are in my and Jane’s thoughts and prayers. Even though we’ve lost touch over the years I still treasure our friendship as if it was yesterday when we were roommates at UU. You were one of the “good” people!!! Again, our sincere condolences to you and your family.
