Sandy donated her marvelous collection of stuffed animals – a pristine assortment of primates – given to her by her adoring husband Steve. Some of the furry critters had little notes attached – love notes from Steve to Sandy.
Sandy, you always make me smile. Love, Steve
Sandy, I get a kick out of you. Love, Steve
Sandy, I’ll love you forever!
