Denny, I can't imagine facing the terrible losses that you've had to do in the past 2 weeks. Mary Helen and I were close friends in grade school and high school. I too lost track of you all after college. She was terrific and fun and obviously still very beautiful. We are so sorry for your loss. Our sympathies to you and your family.
