"Dick and I went to Florida and spent some time with LeAnne and Patti in 2014.  After visiting the site where my mother's boatyard had been, we went to a wonderful restaurant on the bay and shared old memories for several hours.  LeAnne was her usual gregarious self and regaled us with numerous tales and questions about what was going on in our lives.  It was a very enjoyable evening.  I will always remember her laughter."
