There is another friend coming - get ready to go greet John Dews. He died this morning. I just got the word on Facebook, and I'm very sad and stunned. I don't believe you ever met John, but I know I talked about him. I've known him since high school. We worked together in Children's Theater and the high school theater, and were close friends. I talked to him on the phone a few weeks ago. He's been part of my life for 43 years. I will miss him.
When you see him, please give him my love. And look around for his father, and give him my best as well. Tell John how happy I am for him, that his health problems are in the past and his labor is done. For me, I am sad to be without him. I'm without so many people that I love, especially you. So get everybody together tonight, and have a big group hug from me to all of you.
Miss you most of all,
