Pam and Tyler, how sad I was to read about Mr. Windley's passing! I only met him once, but I knew from my wonderful friendship with you, Pam, and from how much I adored you, Tyler, that he had to be a fabulous guy simply because his wife and son were so fabulous. I love you and will keep you and Mr. Windley in my prayers. I miss you both. Love, Jan
