Fannie found the note as she was cleaning Dana’s house in early March in anticipation of her return to Solitude. Dana had torn the ACL in her knee playing tennis over the Christmas holidays when she was in Florida with her husband Larry and his daughter’s family. Dana and Larry had planned to leave the country in January for a mission trip to the Philippines. Larry went alone while Dana had surgery and rehab in Naples. She’d gotten much closer to Larry’s daughter and her two children in the process. Sadly Dana also witnessed the demise of Loren’s marriage.
The note Fannie discovered was neatly folded and addressed to Dana and stuffed inside the pillow case where Dana’s brother Phil had been hiding out in the attic of the Victorian style house in the small village of Solitude before Christmas.
