Jean,

Friday, the day you started this thread, would have been Vaughn's 72nd birthday. It's a day the boys and I, and various other friends, take care to celebrate every year. Hearing your voice again (however electronically) made a special day more so.

People ask - now and again, and one way or another - how life is when you've lost your life partner. However I choose to phrase it, my answer's always the same, "bittersweet." Some days....some days the "sweet" gets to be the stressed syllable.

So good to hear from you!

- George
