Hello Al. It's Deborah from Hills Pond. You may recall my husband and I have the log home directly across the lake from your home there. You were kind enough to collect our Kayak oars after a particularly powerful storm when we first purchased our home there.
I remember the beautiful flower boxes you and Bonnie always had on the window sills facing the lake. We enjoyed them often. Our sincere condolences to you and your entire family on the loss of your wife. It's so hard to lose a loved one. May your memories sustain you. Warmly, Deborah and James
