I know leaving us at this time was Daddy's own will - he was getting very frail & infirm & didn't like it one bit! - When we were with him in April he was still able to dress up & come out to see us at our hotel - & he only was really bat the last week or so in the hospital - so we all can be grateful the he was spared any long illness. We do go through Chicago from time to time - so don't be surprised to hear my voice on the phone one of these days. Love to you & Lily from both Richard & Me XXX Ava P.S.
