  2. Gary and D’Anne,

    I was reading through the archived obituaries and read about Sally. I am so sorry for you guys. I moved to Denver a year ago, so don’t read the Pueblo paper. Maybe you know that my Dad (Ralph Levy) passed away on July 3, 2007. We are all devastated at this time. He always thought so highly of Gary’s teaching in Pueblo at the university. My Mom is in poor health also, and my plan is to move back to the Pueblo area to help my sister take care of Ann. My best to you and your family at this time of loss.
