So very sorry to hear the passing of your loved one. We, along with you folks enjoyed a brief period of time that we spent together during past election campaigns. Mom and I in particular enjoyed each others company when we both worked in the school system. Special regard to Cheezo (sp) the local gardener, fisherman and hunter....Great people of Cheshire...

Your friends, the Melito's
