    Hi Gloria. I am very saddened to hear about Tony. I saw the announcement in the IC church bulletin. My heart was heavy when I read the bulletin. I hope you are doing ok. I know you sold your Elmhurst home and I often think of you and wondered where your new residence is. Here is my number 630-832-9047 if you would like to get together sometime. Take care. Barb and Marty Gallagher
