Dear Bunny and Hank, Your mother was a relative of mine and also of my sister Jane's. We were related on our dad's side (Stanley Nicholson - my dad's family were Nelsons). At any rate, your mother contacted Jane and me concerning the family tree. We enjoyed several years of knowing your mother via e-mails, luncheon dates and things of that nature. My husband Keith and I saw Carol in early April. We took lunch in to her. We had no idea she was so ill. We are very sorry for your loss. With love to you from Linda Lewis
