Hard news to hear

As I am far out of the country and out of instant communications, I was sad to finally receive the news today about the passing of longtime Las Vegan Mary Allred. We've know her and her husband, Jerry, all our adult lives. It's hard being away during news like this.

If you were putting together a "Must Have Dinner" list among Las Vegans, Mary and Jerry would be on my list. Always fun and a joy.

Smooth sailing, Mary. Until we dine again.
