    Hi all,

    I’m writing with sad news about Mary Francis’ partner, Russell Schmitz. He had a massive heart attack and died Mon. night. It happened so suddenly. Howie and I stopped by her house tonight. Both her daughters and her sister are with her. There will be a service celebrating Russ’ life on Sun. at the church she and Russ loved attending.

    I’m sorry to bear such bad news. Mary Francis and Russ were super happy together. It’s unimaginable right now, especially as she has her own health challenges. I love her so much.

    I hope you are all well. Howie and our girls and their partners are all good.

    Sending love,


    Sarah Anne
