    Vera and I go way back to the 1960's. We shared a double room at old Jane Lamb Nurses Home while she worked and I was in training in xray. I haven't seen any of you in years. Had no idea where Vera even was. Sorry to hear she has passed. This year has been strange. At my age, I do not go anywhere to speak of. That virus has us spooked. Hope you guys are all doing well.
