2.4/21 Henri's Memorial Program
Dear Tomoye and Martha...
I've tried calling on the phone to fax, but Tomoye's line has been busy so I thought I'd go ahead and email you the information for the program. If there are changes or items you needed added, please let me know.
The past week was quite stressful and traumatic, so please be sure you both get plenty of rest. If there are other things you need me to do, please feel free to call.
