    Almost every day, here at Edgewood Summit, I would see Tanya. Usually ,when she was picking up dinner to take to apartment.. She saw to it that her dog, Daisy, got proper exercise. I always enjoyed teasing with her and seemed to enjoy the reparte’. . Tanya will be missed. I cannot get to the funeral. I would have liked to have spoken to her family.

    I was thinking about you today Tanya–all of the wonderful times we had together at Kaki’s house as we were growing up. Your Mom was a second Mother to me. I miss you and wish we could re-visit some of those special times together so many years ago.
