  1. David, I’m so sorry for your and your childrens’ loss. I hope that your good memories will be a comfort to you, and I wish you all the best in the coming year.

  2. Mike, she was 62.

    Regardless of that, thank you. Nila was glad to have met you.

    JJ, I’m sorry that I don’t know who you are behind those initials, but thank you nonetheless.

  3. Ack! I don’t know why I typo’ed her birth year, except that it’s one year off my own and I hit the wronk, uh, wrong key.

    Nila was born in 1954 — my error, not Mike’s.

    At least I never forgot our anniversaries.

    And I will miss her every single one of them.
