                      Dearest Christine, Bryce married ‘big’ as well, a lady big in heart and love and generosity. Thank you, dear friend, for sharing this. It brings back memories for me too. Now, when is the book coming out? Your “Life with Bryce” can then become “the book under the Christmas tree”!
