This entry may be the last for awhile. We depart this morning (Saturday) for Menton to meet Mary Anne’s French friends, the Rizos and the Koehlers. They told me that they would plan everything so I have no idea if I’ll have internet access. Meeting the Rizos/Koehlers is the main reason we are making this trip. I wanted to try and maintain the relationship with them and thought that making a visit relatively soon after Mary Anne’s passing (along with learning French) offered the best opportunity to do so. We’re looking forward to a great time and I’ll update the blog when I can.
