Charlie Stookey. Dear Meri: Memories! Sitting at St.Mary’s with not-your-Bill waiting for Cody’s birth. When the heart beat stopped on the monitor, we panicked. Then learned both of you were safe! Wahoo! You and your Bill drove me to Portola to meet with Tom Lavin for a job. I turned it down. You said you thought it better for me to be in Reno. Thanks. You & Bill gave me a pen for completing my Master’s. I keep it at work to remind me of your kindness. What a journey-thanks for the help.
