    "Jan, Thanks so much for traveling to Weatherford to attend Faye's funeral service and reception. It was good to see you again and the other ladies. The experiences that we had during the Gemini and Apollo days were so great. It was a unique period of time and the women that supported their husbands for the program was a very important part of the success of the great project of our country and the world. My daughters and the rest of Faye's family appreciated so much your presents during that time. Thanks again. All the best, Sincerely, Tom"
