    I was so sorry to read about Alexis in the paper today. I often think about our fun times together on your boats and the with the Auxillary. I’m sorry we lost touch after Birney died. I am leaving on Tuesday to go to Paris for a week with my sister. I will call you when I get back and hopefully we can get together.
    My thoughts are with you.

    Alexis’ family, I am truly saddened by the passing of Alexis. I have had several transactions with her in real estate sales.
    She went above and beyond in closing all transactions. Very professional in all that she did. Her family is in my thoughts
    and prayers. She will be truly missed by all that new her.
