I received the following note from Maria today. I have redacted her address and phone information.
“Thank you Chuck.
As you may or may not know, my husband and I are now living in FL.
We have been here for 21/2 years but would move back to Madison in a heart beat if it weren’t for the fact that our children all live here now.
We miss our Madison friends and Maria`s family as well as Madison as a City which Maria lived in for 741/2 years.
I hope there will be a reunion next year.
Maria Messina Ritacca”
