    To Morgan and Michael….not sure but hope you remember us as good friends of both Jan and Bob, when we lived on West Haven Road back in ’85 and until we moved back to CT in ’94. Jan especially was a dear friend to both of us, and we remember both she and Bob and always smile when we look at the painting Bob did of Theresa and our first golden retriever Brandy, which still hangs in our living room today. We only heard about Jan’s passing earlier this week, from Margaret, who had been out of town and had also just heard from other neighbors. Jan had a wonderful long life, and we were always very glad to have known her and counted her as a friend, Hope you and your families are well/Sincerely, Chris & Theresa Levy
