      Mr. & Mrs. Pesce, thank you for your kind words. I read your note to Mom. She has had a difficult time of her own. She is currently in a rehab facility. She had a stroke mid July and has had difficulty recovering. In the midst of it all, Dad passed. Been a rough ride. Feel free to contact me on my cell 904-557-4439 and hopefully I can coordinate a phone call with Mom. She would love to hear from her teacher friends. Sincerely, Wendy

    Paul and Diane were my next door neighbors on Walker Hill Road. They were the nicest people and I could always depend on Paul to help me out with a project. I know they will be missed. Fondly Carol Connor
