Dear Sally and Chris,

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. She was a wonderful and sweet woman. It is amazing how our paths have crossed, with your Dad being my Dad’s roommate, then your Mom being down there at the same time as my Dad. My mother and I found your friendship to be very comforting. My deepest sympathy to you both.
