Daffodil friends,

It is my very sad duty to inform of the passing of Tom Ragouzis.

Tom accompanied Liz to many ADS conventions.  He always treated her with much respect and affection, often referring to her as “my Liz.”

If you would like to send condolences, here is Liz’s address:

Liz Ragouzis’ husband Tom has passed away.

Thankfully, Mary Lou Gripshover saw the following obituary in the paper.

Tom was a wonderful, sweet man that will be missed by many.

Liz and her family has our deepest sympathies.
