O M G I have been searching for you, my dearest, since I moved to Washington 7 years ago. I am so so so sorry we lost touch with each other.... I am so devastated to find this, your final article.

I remember how you and Jerry and I spent weekends together making your wonderful Mother's fried rice

recipe and soaking labels off of booze bottles while organizing AVON and watching soaps!!! We were the original "multi task-ers!!!". I know Dianne remembers this too, don't you Di?

And Millie? I still have your sewing machine and vase.

What wonderful memories I have, and I can honestly say I have never known any women since Sandy and Dianne that I could call friends till the end.

You are missed incredibly. I will always love you and your family. See you someday. Teresa Azevedo
