  1. Hi Bob,

    I’ve been wanting to send you condolences for quite some time. I didn’t know about Dear Madonna’s passing until after her services. I’m sorry that I didn’t get to her memorial and that I didn’t get to let you know how very special she and you are! I’ve let our new District 4 President know about her passing and CNA may be contacting you for additional information. There will be something put in Colorado Nurse; when I see it I’ll let you know. I hope you are doing well Bob. Madonna was a very beautiful woman with a really big heart for people. Love to you Bob, Nancy and Kerry Van Etten
