I was looking through the newspaper when I saw a photo of a young girl. She looked just like a classmate of mine at SSGH in the 60's and I smiled. Then I realized that it was an obit. The girl was the daughter of my classmate Mary Ann Guman, and I cried. Having lost a son to cancer a while back I have some idea of what you're feeling about now, and I do know that nothing that I can say can ease your pain and sorrow. Please know that I'm so very sorry for your loss. It's the worse thing that can happen to a parent. I do hope that time, along with the support of your family will comfort you at this terrible time. I'm so very sorry for your loss, Mary Ann. Pat
