I am so sorry to hear about Richard. I remember as a little girl how I would sleep over the Gutof's house and enjoy the time we spent together. I grew up and had children of my own and we would see each other at the Wilmette beach which I was encouraged to join by Anita and Richard. My love to all. Sending our condolences from Colorado.
