Dear Cheryl / Jon,
I want to send my condolences on the death of your mother. I have such fond memories of her & your family when you lived down the street from us on Cornell Ave. Your mom always had a funny story to tell and was fun to be around. She will be missed. I hope you will find comfort in your memories of her. Your family will be in my prayers.
All the best & deepest sympathy,

I am so sorry for your loss. I was unable to attend the funeral but I am thinking of Louise right now. I worked with her at Presbyterian and she always made me laugh. She and I always tried to solve all the world’s problems when we went to lunch. She was a great lady and I will miss her.
