    Hi Michelle,
    We just found out that your mom, and our classmate had passed away. Although it’s late, we wanted to express our sorrow at your loss and ours. We had sent an invitation to an event, and when it was returned to us, we discovered Janis had passed.
    Please know that she will not be forgotten. We have memorial listings and pictures of our friends who have gone before us displayed each time we get together, so she’ll live on in our memories.
    May she rest in peace, and your memories sustain you.
