Ray JonesI am writing to you from my home in Marietta, Georgia. It is good to be with Judy full time. For the longest time, we have traveled back and forth from our home in Marietta to the small apartment we rent in Louisville. However, I continue to find myself grieving over lost work routines, being with people in person and dealing with the uncertainty that each day brings our way. The numbers of people dying from COVID-19 is heartbreaking.
